Maximising investments, staying compliant and retaining clear visibility of software assets has become a major challenge in the age of the cloud and hybrid IT services. Organisations frequently find themselves paying too much for software licences or not enough, risking fines from vendor audits. Ergo consultants will analyse your current software licensing position and identify appropriate investments for the future.
Our expertise will bring tangible benefits to your organisation:
Maximise licence investments – we help optimise value by avoiding over-installation and ensuring multiple licence agreements used by disparate parts of the business achieve the best possible value.
Procure more effectively – through our needs analysis process and a review of existing software licensing agreements, we will help you build a thorough tender process to get the best deals.
Ensure compliance – our software audit will establish if any licences can be uninstalled and at the same time identify licences that need to be purchased to ensure vendor compliance and avoid fines.
Over one-third of business software is used illegally, often inadvertently through the mismanagement of network infrastructure and the desktop. By reviewing your software ownership and establishing an audit trail of licence documentation, our consultants will help avoid costly pitfalls, such as over-installing products or altering server configurations that may affect usage.
