Zylo, the leading SaaS management platform, announced the introduction
of functionality designed to enhance Software-as-a-Service Management
for enterprise organizations.
The new capabilities enable technology teams to more effectively and
efficiently manage SaaS tools throughout an organization. An
enterprise’s total SaaS investment now amounts to more than $10,000 per
employee per year according to a recent Zylo analysis of more than 30
million transactions. In comparison, according to the National Business
Group on Health, the average cost to provide healthcare to an employee
and their dependents runs about $14,000 per year.
“Your people and your software can be two of the biggest factors to
creating great customer experiences,” says Zylo CEO and co-founder Eric
Christopher. “The SaaS tools you invest in and how you choose to
maximize their value for your employees both directly impact your
“CIOs and IT leaders want to ensure their companies have the absolute
best technology management to drive success. The enterprise features we
launch today help create a proactive management strategy that matches
the scale and maturity needed to achieve these results in large firms.”
Today’s launch includes several new features in the Zylo platform that
are designed to enable technology managers to intentionally delegate and
socialize the management of SaaS applications across the business. These
include the ability to:
Create and maintain separate SaaS inventories for distinct
business units with simple account switching while continuing to monitor
all SaaS applications throughout the business.
Socialize SaaS visibility to teams and users across the business
by creating views that display team-or user-specific subsets of software
applications, including the ability to reveal data such as cost, renewal
date, license information, and utilization.
Empower a distributed SaaS management strategy for SaaS
applications by giving teams and users role-based permissions to
directly manage their owned applications.
Preserve data compliance and confidentiality by combining views
and permissions to restrict access to sensitive data such as payment
information to only teams and users who require it.
Automatically discover and assign new SaaS applications in real
time through predetermined logic and automation rules, reducing the need
to assign every new application entering the environment.
Drive an actionable SaaS management practice with platform
workflows to consolidate visibility, secure the enterprise, save time,
and maximize investments.
The new capabilities extend Zylo’s ability to address the full spectrum
of enterprise SaaS management challenges, including the principal need
to discover and contain shadow IT as well the goal to develop mature
processes that promote governance with reduced burden.
The largest independent enterprise SaaS management platform, Zylo
transforms how businesses manage their SaaS application portfolios. By
creating transparency around SaaS spend, license utilization, and user
feedback, Zylo provides a centralized system of record that empowers
business leaders to discover, manage, measure, and govern their SaaS
investment. Zylo was named a Rising Star in Forbes’ Cloud 100 list, the
definitive list for private cloud companies.
