How to Manage Tenants on a SaaS platform
To efficiently provision for newly registering tenants, managing end-users and making tenant specific customizations, SaaS applications should has a powerful backend system enabled by the SaaS framework.
Through this back-end, administrators can assign tenant users specific access privileges. Within the tenant organization there will be multiple users with varying levels of application usage needs. To be most effective, the application needs to have the ability to assign functionality to users depending on the tenant organization’s requirements. This is also vital to maintaining the security of the application; where only authorized users are able to view specific information and carry out certain tasks. In Digital Saber’s Trackr, all this can be managed by the Administrative portal of the system.
