Leading Analyst Firm Publishes Research Designed to Highlight Interesting, New, and Innovative Vendors, Products, and Services in the ITAM Market.

INDIANAPOLIS — OCTOBER 2, 2018 — Zylo, the largest independent enterprise SaaS management platform, today announced that it has been named a Cool Vendor based on the September 25, 2018 report titled “Cool Vendors in IT Asset Management, 2018” by April Adams, Roger Williams, Yanni Karalis, Pamela Wheelwright at Gartner, Inc. The report highlights interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services in the ITAM market that improve data quality and benefit software asset management efforts.

According to the report, “In a 2018 Gartner primary research survey, 73% of respondents reported a strong need to implement SAM for SaaS applications within their organizations.” The report also provides key findings for IT leaders including the following:

  • Good data quality provides the foundation for any successful IT asset management (ITAM) initiative, but many Gartner clients report that data quality issues stall tool deployments.
  • Reducing the risk of being out of compliance continues to be a top driver of software asset management (SAM) tool investments, according to survey respondents.

“We believe it is a unique honor to be named a Gartner Cool Vendor,” said Eric Christopher, Co-founder and CEO of Zylo. “Cloud computing is powering new and changing business models across the enterprise today. Zylo provides one system of record to professionally manage cloud software subscriptions with effective governance, measurement, and cost visibility. From our view, this recognition validates our commitment to leading global enterprises to change the way software is managed now that the Cloud has changed the way it is purchased.”

We feel that the information provided in the report is of value to all IT, Sourcing and Vendor Management and Asset Management professionals who are seeking new ways to manage their SaaS by providing visibility into SaaS spending and utilization from one system of record.
