WalkMe Inc., the San Francisco-based digital adoption solution provider, announced the availability of WalkMe Discovery. The new solution gives IT executives and enterprise software owners visibility into their enterprise software stack. WalkMe Discovery automatically detects all the web-based apps a company is running, who is using what software and whether they’re using it as intended.
Paired with WalkMe’s capabilities to drive software adoption, companies now have a broader range of choices to maximize ROI once they understand the real inefficiencies in their software stack, the company says.
According to the company’s 2022-2023 State of Digital Adoption report, achieving sustainable growth is a top priority for enterprises today, which puts immense pressure on software budgets to prove ROI and cut waste. Many large enterprises are unaware (51%) of the applications deployed in their companies. Thus, the lack of visibility into the tech stack greatly contributes to the $16M annual investment wasted on software that’s duplicative or unused.
WalkMe Discovery Features
According to the company, WalkMe Discovery takes a unique approach to identifying and analyzing usage of web-based applications, shadow IT, and home-grown cloud applications, says the company. Unlike other solutions that only provide basic login data or require deep integrations, WalkMe Discovery delivers click-by-click data, layering on organizational and employee attributes to understand usage in the context of the jobs people are trying to get done. This approach provides a more holistic view of the software stack.
“Optimizing software spend and driving efficiencies isn’t just about reducing costs, it’s about driving adoption of technology to ensure enterprises are not only paying for what they need, but also getting what they paid for,” said Dan Adika, CEO & Co-Founder, WalkMe, in a blog post.“With the availability of WalkMe Discovery, WalkMe is the only provider that helps enterprises maximize the efficiency of software spend with insight into opportunities for enterprise-wide cost savings and with solutions for improving adoption, unlike point solutions that only provide one or the other.”
The new solution is free through Dec. 31, 2023 to companies, new and existing WalkMe customers that have a strategic initiative to optimize software investments.
