What do our most successful customers have in common? What kind of value are they getting from automating SaaSOps, and how are they getting value? Here’s the secret to how they do it.
Choosing a new SaaS tool means combing through lists of dozens (dozens!) of similar apps, and it can be hard to tell which is the right one for the job. As an IT admin there’s a lot more to consider than just “Does this get the job done?” when evaluating a new or replacement SaaS tool. Today’s IT organizations have to deal with an incredible number of applications to administer and secure, on top of our more traditional tasks. And yet, IT admins are still very much needed to help evaluate SaaS applications before purchase. So how do we do this? And more importantly, how do we make this a sustainable, scalable process?
As part of its support for the growing SaaSOps movement, BetterCloud last week hosted the SaaSOps Stars Awards, the first awards ceremony to recognize outstanding SaaSOps practitioners. Winners included ten individuals and teams who, through their SaaSOps practice, helped their companies scale, increased productivity, decreased friction, strengthened security, achieved greater compliance, protected users and data, or otherwise took initiative and significantly improved the lives of users.
BetterCloud founder and CEO David Politis recently hosted an online panel discussion with IT leaders from three unicorn companies: Vicky Couturier, IT systems director at InVision; Anthony Ancheta, IT manager at Lime; and Matt Kauffman, IT help desk manager at Toast.

This year at Oktane, we hosted a customer panel where we shone a light on a few of our phenomenal customers: Bird, Juul Labs, Peloton, and Spotify. They discussed how they use BetterCloud to save their organizations time and money (and their own sanity).
