The report provides an outline of the cloud office management tools market and its offerings.
Gartner analyst and report author, Terrence Cosgrove, notes that infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders should, "Use a third-party cloud office management tool to get the necessary governance and administration to enable end-user adoption of cloud office functionality."

BetterCloud has found that over 70% of organizations planning to run nearly all of their business operations on SaaS applications by 2020.
Cosgrove writes that, "There are many management functions that are virtually identical across SaaS applications.
