As SaaS usage grows, and the demands of remote workers fill up ticket queues, IT has never needed a SaaS management platform (SMP) more than now.

Everything you need to know to buy the right SaaS management platform for your environment

Identify Your Current IT Challenges

Between SaaS sprawl, remote work, and hiring challenges, IT has a lot to tackle. When fully implemented, the right SaaS management platform can alleviate a wide range of issues and challenges. Our  checklist helps you identify the challenges an SMP can help you overcome in just a few weeks, including: 

  • Operational issues

Learn How a SaaS Management Platform Can Help

A new tool seems to pop up every few months that claims to help “manage SaaS.” Not all products calling themselves SMPs are up to the task. Other tools, such as IDaaS, IdP, CASB, and iPaaS, are starting to offer some of the capabilities of an SMP. More often than not, these solutions are not built primarily for IT. 

Our checklist provides everything you need to make sure the solution you choose doesn’t come with unexpected opportunity costs—or doesn't have the core capabilities to address today's IT challenges.

Evaluate Vendors and ROI

With IT teams already lean and overburdened, you don’t want team members spending their valuable time in extensive product-specific training or trying to bolt siloed, disparate point solutions together.

Our mega checklist includes a comprehensive list of over 50 questions to help you deep dive into each provider and platform—and make sure you get the most for your investment.

However, the market for potential solutions is crowded. The wrong solution can cost your team more than it saves. Our handy mega checklist is here to make sure your IT team gets the critical capabilities you need, in a platform your team can actually use.
