A Look at the State of SaaS Management in 2020

Yesterday, in conjunction with the launch of Productiv Essentials, we released the results of a survey we conducted with our friends at Pulse on the State of SaaS Management. You can download a full copy of the report here, but we wanted to call out the most interesting findings in this post. 

The findings really drive home how important effective SaaS management is for enterprises today. According to the report, a whopping 97% of respondents don’t have complete visibility into how their applications are used by employees. 

Also, 88 percent of respondents believe that a central location for SaaS management would simplify internal processes, increase visibility, and provide teams with the opportunity to focus more on strategic initiatives. 

However, automation is key to this strategy, with 94 percent noting that managing SaaS applications with manual tools leads to out-of-date information and poor business decision making. 

The State of SaaS Management in 2020 was conducted by Pulse on behalf of Productiv. The study polled IT executives to better understand how centralizing SaaS application management can improve visibility into key tool analytics and their company’s bottom line.
