Intello’s SaaS Management Platform Aims to Shape the Future of IT Asset Visibility with New Jamf Integration
New York, NY — FEBRUARY 26, 2020: Intello, the first and most-integrated SaaS Management platform, today announced a new integration with Jamf (the premier Apple device management vendor) and the launch of two new features including desktop-based software usage data and advanced license metadata.
The Jamf integration allows IT teams to monitor:
- Desktop-based application usage like Adobe Creative Cloud, Zoom, Slack, Microsoft Office, and others, in addition to the already offered cloud-based SaaS tools like Asana, Smartsheet, Google Cloud and more
- Advanced user metadata with deeper engagement metrics for applications like Salesforce, Zoom, Okta, Google Suite, and others to monitor and optimize by license type, events, client version, and more
“The Jamf integration and continued roll-out of new functionality help bridge the gap for IT Asset Management,” said Barak Kaufman, Co-Founder and CEO of Intello. “It allows for a single pane of glass combining cloud-based SaaS usage with the installed software and will change the way IT teams manage their software environments.”
The integration and features which were previewed during the 2019 Jamf Nation User Conference in Minneapolis last November are now generally available for all Intello clients at no additional charge. The team stated that Jamf was their first choice for the integration because of the stellar customer reputation and configurable API. Though the desktop-based data is only currently available to Intello’s clients with Jamf, the team is actively building new integrations to expand this use case and make broader connections to cover the entire SaaS landscape including Workspace One, Intune, and others.
“Our clients are already seeing a lot of value with these new feature sets,” said Michoel Ogince, VP of Strategy and Client Success at Intello. “I’ve heard from many clients how this is positioning the IT team to be truly proactive for the first time.”
Brent Mills, IT Manager at Instrument, who started using the integration as part of the beta program says, “We jumped on the Jamf integration as soon as it was available. Information on desktop usage of SaaS applications was difficult to come by, and Intello has made that discovery process far easier.”
Though Intello offers robust spend management and procurement features, they see themselves as being purpose-built for IT teams that are equally focused on security and usage.
“We aren’t going to be the right solution for everyone. For companies that only want spend tracking across their SaaS apps we might be overkill,” added Barak. “We have and will always be focused on IT and the growing challenges they’re facing. We see IT as the center of scaling growth and the changemakers for what’s possible in business, and aim to help them collaborate on the entire lifecycle, security and optimization of their SaaS applications.”
Automated management of your SaaS application usage, security and spend. All in one place.
Intello’s SaaS Operations platform enables IT, Finance and Security leaders to take back control of every SaaS tool in use around the company. The real-time dashboards automatically shine a light on shadow IT, unused licenses, and more through direct integrations like Zoom, Google, Slack and hundreds more.
As organizations and the software marketplace grow, so do the SaaS tools being used; whether they’re approved or not. IT teams shouldn’t be stuck with old processes and spreadsheets to manage the ever-growing number of subscriptions and licenses. Intello instantly empowers organizations with visibility of all of their SaaS spend, usage, security and compliance, and allows them to collaboratively manage licensing, renewals and payments.
