Global Software License Management For Large Organizations
Large, decentralized organizations have been traditionally sold solutions more tailored to small and medium size businesses, from providers who lack the experience and knowledge to roll out license management on a global scale. There are technical and organizational challenges unique to large companies that require special training and expertise. An independent study by the ITAM Review confirms that Aspera software license management is chosen by large and very large organizations more than any other competitor.
License-centric Software Asset Management
Thousands of companies will invest in software license management technology over the next five years. In a complex process like license management it all comes down to the level of automation the tool provides and the process knowledge of the solution provider. Purchase an incompetent solution and your company will suffer, falling behind the industry standard on compliance and software cost control, spending more on software in the long run. This white paper explains how an entitlement-centric approach to software asset management ensures the highest data quality for reliable information and protection during audits.
Manage Licensed Software, Optimize License Consumption, and Move Closer to Interoperable Solutions
The concept of software asset management as a process that provides transparency and enables proactive control and optimization of license consumption is a must-have for any well run organization. Furthermore, a solution that supports interoperable IT management is something the market has been demanding for years. Efficient end-to-end processes covering everything from license procurement to software distribution are essential for transparency, pro-active control, and interoperability.
Software License Management for the Public Sector
In the past, government agencies were granted volume contracts with very favorable purchasing conditions. Many of these agreements are now expiring and due to the economy software publishers are no longer so flexible with their pricing. The next round of volume contracts, covering an average term of 3 to 5 years, will significantly raise the cost of software. Software publishers are also investing more in compliance programs, that audit commercial and government customers alike. Given the role government plays in the protection of intellectual property, it would be very embarrassing if a department failed to comply with its licensing agreements and had to deal with the legal and financial consequences to boot. Government can permanently reduce software costs with process-oriented license management proven to work in large, complex, decentralized enterprises.
