Use Case

SaaS Discovery and Catalog

Automated SaaS discovery and catalog is the first, critical step towards establishing complete transparency over your SaaS estate. It also lays the foundation for effective SaaS Management.

Story Background

SaaS applications are easy to access and deploy. In fact, employees can subscribe to SaaS applications and start using them without any involvement of IT. This may promote organizational agility, but it also makes it hard to keep track of your rapidly growing SaaS portfolio.

LeanIX SaaS Management Platform (SMP) helps your business create a complete inventory of your SaaS applications. It also empowers you to track usage, monitor licensing contracts, and ensure you get the most from your SaaS investment, without exposing yourself to costly risk.
