Note: Though the results found above are based on LeanIX’s proprietary data and external industry sources, actual results are likely to vary once SaaS Intelligence is implemented. Please take into account that identified savings can be realized at the time of renewal or when contracts expire (depending on contract dates, this can sometimes take a year or more).
