XaaS and consumption-based business models are on the rise, with many high tech companies now selling outcomes instead of products.

Chip shortages and supply chain disruptions

The chip shortage, the pandemic, and war have exposed major holes in tech supply networks. Leaders need end-to-end visibility to adapt.
