How we help
CLOUD LICENSING AND PROCUREMENT
Modern software consumption solutions.
Reduce hardware and software procurement costs and software management requirements through modern needs-based licensing.
Irrespective of your industry, market dynamics are changing rapidly. To create a business model that can adapt swiftly to these changes – allowing flexibility as your software and hardware requirements increase or decrease – calls for a different approach.
As your business changes, so must your cost base in order to maintain operational and financial efficiencies. Software is no different to other parts of your business. You wouldn't expect your business to purchase stock upfront only for it to sit in warehouses delivering no return on your investment. The same applies to software.
If you feel your licensing is a complex web of mystery, you probably don't have complete control over the software you need to operate your business.
It used to be simple: buy the product, install the product, use the product. This approach allowed no flex. Your business remained encumbered with the upfront 'guesstimates' of people you might need to licence, resulting in shortfalls and overages.
Shifting from an upfront procurement model to a monthly consumption model requires careful planning, to ensure you get the best value from your investment and that you are not having to engage multiple partners to get the fully supported outcome you need.
