Software License Optimization is a term used to describe a range of capabilities that complement traditional IT Asset Management and that provide organizations with the ability to maximize use of their procured software licenses while minimizing spend associated with those licenses. Software License Optimization offers one of the largest areas for potential cost savings in any organization’s IT budget.
ITAM – Software License Optimization is the ongoing process of proactively managing the software estate, throughout the software product lifecycle, to maximize utilization of assets, minimize costs and maintain license compliance. It requires reconciling software installations (inventory data) with what the organization has purchased—license entitlements, taking into account the vendor’s product use rights that determine how the software can be installed and/or used.
Optimize SaaS Subscriptions and Licensing
As you consolidate, virtualize or re-platform your infrastructure, it may be difficult to keep track of what database and software components are licensed, where they are deployed, and whether there is a more efficient strategy to maximize the value of your software licenses. You may even find yourself over-licensed in one area and out of compliance in another.
