ABSTRACT:
Supply chain globalization, increased complexity, rising costs, and the need to respond rapidly to supply chain changes and disruptions are focusing companies across industries to consider new ways to quickly deploy and modify supply chain management solutions.

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a key deployment mechanism that has the potential to allow companies an approach that minimizes Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) but the key question is - does SaaS allow companies to realize the business ROI? Through the responses of over 130 enterprises, Aberdeen identifies whether SaaS and related approaches are a long-term, viable option in the SCM space or not. In addition, the specific areas within SCM where SaaS applications have gained adoption, and reasons why they have, are also explored.
