Are there new tools or platforms that you are considering or using (beyond a spreadsheet :)  for SaaS management and helping cut overall cloud costs?

It depends largely on the SaaS solutions in your cloud. We did a number of experiments with native SaaS solution management  functionality, especially around cybersecurity SaaS solutions, to identify if we are justifiably seeing actionable information. In many cases, with a little bit of tweaking, the answer was yes. But the problem, as I am sure you are alluding to, lies in being able to maintain an overall situational awareness across all SaaS solutions in a unified dashboard manner. The solution to that lies in variety of SaaS solutions in your environment, and if those can be universally integrated in a single management platform. IMO, ServiceNow is a formidable option, and then you have the industry leaders.

We used a great product called Densify that help you see the costs you spending on each workload and gives you the visibility to see what it would cost if it was hosted somewhere else. Not really a SaaS tool but helped us determine which workloads to host and which ones to outsource to a SaaS provider.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
