The market for SaaS tools has expanded dramatically in recent years. Alongside an accelerated delivery of applications in the cloud in large enterprises, there is now an estimated 11,000+ SaaS companies worldwide. SaaS revenue also exceeded $100 billion last year, and it’s predicted that 80% of software will be SaaS by 2030.
These estimates get bigger every year, and it should come as little surprise to listeners of Unleash IT that SaaS management and SaaS visibility are key concerns of IT and Business leaders throughout industries. Still, strategies and tools for SaaS management are not widely understood – a problem forcing many to rely on homegrown and ineffective solutions.
For these reasons and more, I’m pleased be speaking today with LeanIX’s very own Dusan Omercevic, VP of Product for the SaaS Management Platform — LeanIX’s fully automated SaaS management solution which provides automated views of SaaS applications in an enterprise.
Dusan recognized the great potential and challenges of SaaS many years ago, and in response, built and launched the SaaS Management Platform at Cleanshelf, a US and Slovenia-based group which he headed and founded until its acquisition by LeanIX earlier this year.
Dusan’s innovations are a perfect complement to LeanIX’s offerings in Application Portfolio Management and are a necessary antidote to the problems CIOs and CFOs face when keeping track of a company’s decentralized software tooling ecosystem. In addition, his previous engineering and product leadership roles at companies like Zemanta and Squrb make him especially qualified to share best practices and insights on SaaS today.
