Unified organizational view with software license management

It is characteristic for digital enterprises to have multiple applications, business-critical as well as back office (COTS and custom), running on complex, yet converged and integrated infrastructure, supported by myriad software products. As a result, it is almost always challenging to get a holistic view of all the licensed software that enterprises use against deployments. There is often a lack of visibility of the exact number of instances of software actually being used. The different types of licensing models software vendors use makes the situation even more complex.

Enterprises are, therefore, constantly looking for ways to optimize license spending and avoid non-compliance issues. One of the measures adopted by them is periodically analyzing the changes   IT infrastructure influence license consumption is undergoing. Implementing business processes and the right technology solution that joins financial, contractual, and inventory functions is, therefore, critical. Doing so supports the asset lifecycle efficiently which, in turn, helps enterprises with strategic decision making that is aligned with their long-term vision and growth.

ORCHESTRATING THE TRANSFORMATION WITH TRIANZ

Our analysts and advisors constantly monitor trends and potential developments in the IT infrastructure space, including how digitalization and cloud adoption impact future software needs and requirements. This provides accurate advice to CIOs and helps them with strategic decision making aligned with future direction and growth.

We help CIOs, CFOs and IT managers review their existing applications, software landscape, and current capabilities with regard to asset lifecycle management. We then develop a best practices-driven roadmap for E2E procurement, contract and license management, and future state processes.

We help CIOs implement a simple and consistent application platform to manage asset procurement, contract management, and software renewals. These may include implementing/ enhancing a variety of IT service management (ITSM) capabilities, including asset and configuration management, and integration with other discovery and monitoring solutions for centralized management of discovered software assets, usage and renewals.

We develop business-focused software asset and usage reports for operations executives as well as top-level management. We also enhance the asset management function by automating processes. This helps in getting automated notifications of upcoming software renewals tied to usage, automated reclamation of unused license software, assistance with vendor audits, etc. We ensure that dashboards are up to date, real-time information is available 24x7, and options for decision making are provided on time.
