The number of SaaS applications a modern business uses across departments continues to expand, often with overlapping features. While this allows organizations to compete and communicate more effectively than ever, it’s also a relatively new problem to manage all of that spend from a centralized location. What’s worse is oftentimes, the actual usage of all those applications is either obfuscated or outdated.
There is now a close collaboration that happens between finance and IT teams to understand this growing application OpEx and to make sure an organization only pays for what it needs and who needs it. But making sure everyone has real time access to usage is a challenge, often looking at applications one by one just before a looming renewal.
The JumpCloud G2 Track Integration
With JumpCloud’s G2 Track integration, organizations can leverage JumpCloud Directory Insights™ to not only monitor authentication and authorization throughout their cloud directory platform, but now also increase visibility into SaaS spend to optimize their cost models. This is especially helpful in recycling licenses to different users as people join or leave the organization.
Taking it a step further, how do you know the applications different teams are using are either critical, complimentary, or down right painful to use? G2 Track can automatically create and gather user feedback based on JumpCloud application usage.
What Does It Do?
This integration allows finance and IT alike to:
Access Utilization & Engagement Data: See how many licenses you have available with your applications, how many have been allocated, and how many are actively being used.
Gather User Sentiment: Identify what software is critical to your business by getting feedback (through sentiment surveys) from your employees on the tools they use every day.
To get started with this integration, log in to your G2 Track account under Integrations, add your organization’s JumpCloud API key, and you’re off to the races!
