As February comes to a close, the Zluri team has been hustling hard to bring out new features that can help your company manage the SaaS sprawl and IT challenges. Based on the customer requests over the last few months, we have added a host of new features. Here are some of the most popular new additions.
Is it too much to manage software requisition requests, feedback, tasks and comments through spreadsheets & emails? Fret not! We have got your back! Now you can just add a note to any application, user, or department.
Notes can be added by any administrator & are visible across the organization to all administrators.
Soon, you can even add reminders to notes across users, applications, and departments.
Zluri SaaS discovery engine quickly identifies access and usage of all Devices (Android/IOS), Browsers (Google Chrome) & Websites. Through SSO integration, Zluri will automatically tag the relevant type to all the applications identified.
In case you feel anything is not properly tagged, the administrators can go ahead and set the application type through the 'quick edit' or by clicking 'edit application.' This will help you filter the data precisely in the reports and dashboards.
The all-new application Mapping' feature has been added to Zluri's street smart SSO integration, which means the administrators can now manually override the automatic mapping, which might be required in some cases.
Suppose Zluri has identified that ‘Zendesk’ is being used by some users. In that case, the admins can now accurately tweak and correct the applications inside the Zendesk stack, i.e., either Zendesk Chat,' a live chat software, or ‘Zendesk Sell,' a CRM application.
Are you irked by numerous plugins from the same parent app being listed as separate applications? Maximize your productivity and control spending across interconnected applications and extensions through Zluri’s new ‘application merging’ feature that allows you to merge the extensions and plugins to its parent applications.
This will merge the usage & spends of both apps and shows you the true ROI for Zoho CRM that you had bought originally.
Apart from these, we’ve fixed some minor bugs & made some UI changes. The journey of Zluri has just begun, and there is much more to come in the months ahead.

SaaS operations consist of procuring the right set of SaaS apps, managing access to these apps by users/departments, monitoring their usage, and offboarding them properly when they are no longer needed.
Though with all its goodness, SaaS brings financial, security, and compliance risks to organizations. For IT teams, issues like providing and revoking access to employees during onboarding and offboarding or when their role changes are very time-consuming.
When an organization has a large number of SaaS applications in its SaaS stack, it gives rise to SaaS Sprawl.
In this post, we've discussed 7 symptoms of an unoptimized SaaS stack and solutions to optimize the same.
An obese SaaS stack leads to SaaS wastage. It's a disease! It not only causes financial issues but also gives you security and compliance problems. That's why you must keep tight control on your SaaS stack. And it begins with managing your SaaS vendors.
ITAM and ITSM are the two most common responsibilities in the ITOps domain. The use cases and working approaches of the two, on the other hand, are complementary yet vastly different.
Bringing accountability and ownership across organizations for SaaS applications is one of the foundational steps to ensure that organizations' SaaS stack is optimized and fully utilized.
IT and security teams also use tools for securing endpoint devices and applications that employees use so that organizations' data remains secure. Apart from collaboration, communication, and security, there are many other tools that organizations can use and provide to employees to ensure that work is done properly in a remote work setup.
