With evergrowing use of SaaS applications in an enterprise, I am curious to hear how IT Leaders are managing the consumption of SaaS licenses? I am noticing a few kinds of waste: 1. Users have license allocated to them but they don't use it. (shelfware) 2. User left the company but the license wasn't de-provisioned 3. The user has a need but at a very less frequency which means not a real need for a dedicated license. Are leaders on this forum using some SaaS licensing management product or doing home grown coding to manage it?

Financial and Vendor Management - It's really about User Management, not SaaS licensing per se. Here's how I've solved it in the past --> https://www.onelogin.com/blog/cloud-app-provisioning-deprovisioning-for-high-tech

We are going to POC a product called CleanShelf to manage our SaaS spend. I will be happy to let you know how well it works. If anyone else is using CleanShelf or another tool I would be interested in hearing more about it.

We are also looking at an evaluation of clean shelf. Happy to share in the coming weeks.

Zylo.com is a company that I recently learned about as well that may be worth looking into

I am looking at SaaSLicense. https://www.saaslicense.com/pubsite/
Looks like they have a compelling product. I looked at Zylo but they were lacking automation.
