SaaS Management
Platform (SMP)

The Challenge

Customers demand business software that is easier to adopt, integrate with existing systems and use seamlessly with as little technical intervention as possible.

This is where SaaS management platforms (SMP) matters. The challenges that a SMP addresses are

Security

Compliance

Optimizing license usage

Reducing redundant apps

Contract negotiations & renewals

This in turn creates more opportunities for SaaS providers to offer functional, well-designed experiences and products. As the demand for SaaS products and services increase, pressure on IT increases in order to manage and govern the various SaaS applications. While the benefits of SaaS are significant, it can be dizzying for both IT and end users to keep up with the complexity, cost, governance and number of available commercial SaaS.

IT must focus on value added services to complement SaaS usage. IT needs to mould itself into a cloud brokerage, offering value-added capabilities, including help desk/support for cloud SaaS solutions, integration skills, and procurement and contract management skills for cloud usage.
