SaaS aggregator

As cloud-based Software-as-a-Service becomes more common, the end-user, whether consumer or business, becomes increasingly dependent on it, and hence increasingly interested in how a collection of software-as-a-service will interact. The situation is particularly acute for businesses, where businesses want all their databases to join up: CRM system; operational system; finance system; etc.

The optimum solution is a SaaS aggregator that sits between the end users and the individual SaaS services, providing:
  • shared login
  • shared databases
  • user management
  • licensing management
When logged into the SaaS aggregator, the customer can see available individual SaaS solutions that they can purchase and add into their current package. The SaaS aggregator could provide price and feature comparison, and product reviews.
