Certero Continue to Expand Their Cloud Asset Management Solutions With New Modules for Salesforce.com and G Suite

Certero have launched new modules for Salesforce.com and G Suite that will sit alongside our other modules, Office 365, Azure and AWS, all of which are part of our Cloud Asset Management solution called Certero for SaaS.

Certero for SaaS is part of the world’s most advanced and modern IT Hardware and Software Asset Management solutions, which works individually or holistically with all products on the Certero Platform. Now, the solution delivers even greater control and management over cloud IT expenditure with these new modules.

Certero for SaaSoffers true next generation capability for a growing area of concern for many organizations – how to control and manage the growing threat of Shadow IT, Cloud Sprawl and Bill Shock across SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Certero is committed to solving these problems through the continued expansion of its Certero for SaaS solutions, with Salesforce.com and G Suite being the latest additions.

Salesforce.com is one SaaS application in particular that is causing problems for many organizations. Typically, it is purchased by the Sales and/or Marketing department. Like a garden without a gardener to cut the grass or prune the hedges, Salesforce.com instances are largely left unmanaged and grow wild in terms of users, data records, storage consumption and so on. As employees leave and new employees join, accounts are often not reallocated and organizations begin to collect unused licenses and costs.

Similarly, admin users can install applications from the Salesforce.com AppExchange. These apps are often implemented over time without control, clogging the Salesforce.com instance with a sprawl of out dated, legacy applications. As Senior Consultant, David Graham, clarifies, “Organizations have many limits within their instance, such as number of API calls, data fields and so on. By adding new applications into Salesforce.com, some of these limits are in danger of being hit. For example, if API calls exceed the Salesforce determined limit, critical functionality stops working for 24 hours until the system is reset, which affects the management and integrity of the CRM data and can stop marketing automation and other processes from triggering.”

Certero for SaaS Salesforce.com module removes all of these problems by giving organizations greater power and control to optimize licenses, users, storage, data, apps and more. As John Lunt revealed, “Our new Salesforce.com module automates the consolidation of user, license, role and profile data into one area, with multiple click-throughs for deeper analysis. It documents all Salesforce.com platforms in one system, including licenses and permission sets, and provides business intelligence on user activity, last logon dates, pages they have viewed and areas they have accessed. It also delivers clear and easy presentation of Salesforce.com profiles, objects and their associated permissions.”

Delivered in the cloud or on-premise, with out-of-the-box automation, a single source of granular data and advanced analytics, Certero for SaaS gives organizations single pane of glass visibility of their applications and full control over their cloud IT expenditure, making it the world’s most advanced and modern Cloud Asset Management solution.

If you are concerned about cloud IT expenditure spiraling out of control or your Salesforce.com instance has grown wild and unmanageable, speak to Certero’s SaaS Licensing Experts today – we are always here to help.
