The Enterprise Application License Management experts
The IT Challenge –Enterprise Application License Management
In today’s enterprise organisations and public sector establishments, spend on enterprise application licensing can make up a significant percentage of your annual IT budget and may run into £m’s. Controlling this valuable asset is not without its challenges especially considering one such enterprise application vendor and their aggressive acquisition strategy broadening their product range and technological advancements such as Cloud and Virtualisation.
Enterprises that do not have an effective license management methodology in place either drift unwittingly into non-compliance or do not gain the value expected from their licensing investments. Adopting an effective enterprise application software asset and license management methodology to monitor and control your growing Oracle or Microsoft estate has therefore, never been more important. A recurring software asset management (SAM) process covering these vendors is the best way to avoid unplanned or unnecessary license costs, extract maximum value from your existing investment by license recycling and mitigate the risk of reputational damage caused by non-compliance. Industry experts such as Gartner and FAST say that an effective software asset management process can reduce your overall IT spend by 20% – we say that we can save you more.
