We have the expertise and experience to help you minimize your application license consumption.
We Know licensing is complicated, constantly changing and costly.
Let us use our expertise to take the complexity out of this and find you a more cost effective solution.
Understanding License Models
All server environments, SQL, Oracle, VMWare etc have differing license models; some are licensed per-core, some are number of sockets user, some are both.
We simplify this into 3 steps:
1- What are the software licensing rules
2- What are the requirements for expansion, available power and space
3- What are the hardware optimisation rules
OEM Vs Direct Licensing
OEM licenses live and die with the machine assigned, there is no way of moving these to another machines. This is a costly model.
Direct licensing which allows more flexibility, strong ROI and better support
Cost Effective Use of Licenses
Every business has to expand their estate/software at some point.
We are able to reduce costs by maximising the licenses and ensure you get more for your money.
Licenses are expensive and once you have made your initial purchase you usually don't need to buy more. Usually as an estate grows and more users are added the application license exposure grows in line, however this doesn't always need to be the case. Below is an example of how it is done, versus how it should be done.
Example of where trying to get the best price for a product will not get you the best price.
