Understanding and managing your licenses can be very challenging. Many organizations simply opt to increase their spend year over year to maintain compliance. But without regularly analyzing license assignments and usage, it is easy for costs to spiral and drive your spend over budget. Despite being one of the most expensive lines on the technology balance sheet, licensing spend often isn’t scrutinized as an IT investment, meaning organizations may miss an opportunity for significant savings.
Typically, environments have been running for many years, and as new technologies and ways of working have evolved, licensing has gotten more complicated. Using embedded tools, it is difficult to get and interpret data to provide a true picture of usage to match to contractual entitlements. Organizations often purchase unnecessarily expensive named user license types to ensure coverage of users requirements, but in the process, also cover them for use of transactions that they do not need.
As a result, organizations are overspending on their deployment of the licenses. They are unable to effectively optimize their licenses with a manual approach and do not have visibility of their entire estate to effectively negotiate with licenses supplying organization. What do organisations need to make this insightful?
Because a lot of organisations are dealing with these challenges, we are organizing the Digital Round Table: ‘’Managing the licensing and supplementary costs”. This session will be held in English on Thursday, June 24th from 10.00 till 11.30 hrs. During this session we invite you to discuss the topics among your peers. Enabling you to gain new insights and discover opportunities by sharing knowledge and experiences.
