Unlock new opportunities on the cloud platform that more software vendors chose to innovate on.

Australian businesses are in pursuit of relentless digital transformation, seeking out modern SaaS apps that address their specific business goals. It’s great news for the software vendors who can deliver on those demands.

But if you are saddled with legacy software, tools, and technical debts – like the 38% of Australian and New Zealand software vendors that still manage customers in a single tenant, on premise environment1 – then you risk getting left behind. If you don’t prioritise your own digital transformation soon, it will only become harder to stand out in an increasingly competitive market.

This means you can very quickly develop and roll out new applications to market, your teams can experiment and innovate more quickly and frequently.
