SaaS Management

Collaboratively manage your SaaS portfolio & mitigate risk

Beamy oversees the day-to-day operations of your SaaS ecosystem. It centralises knowledge of your SaaS stack to manage usage, optimise contracts and assess the associated risks to your organisation.

Why SaaS Management?

To make sense of your SaaS stack, involving your Business Units

Once you have mapped and understood your SaaS stack, you need to address other issues such as:

  • A chaotic environment due to the hundreds of stakeholders involved, resulting in a lack of visibility of all SaaS applications in use.

  • Ineffective management of applications being used due to the rapid evolution of the SaaS stack - 30% per year (new and decommissioned solutions) - as applications are mostly implemented in a decentralised manner.

  • A lengthy, inefficient cloud approval process due to limited IT resources to track hundreds of projects, leading business units to bypass it.

To properly manage and deliver value to organisations, the IT team must involve the BU manager and/or the SaaS contract owner so that they can be the main point of contact between IT and the employees who use the applications.
