Software License Optimisation Tools Helps To Gain Better Visibility

May 16th 2014 at 12:52 AM

The management of a big organization has always been cumbersome, and especially with so innumerable software licensing and their paraphernalia to handle. Though, a good inventory system can be very helpful in controlling this to a certain  extent. But at the same time as using the SLO tools, it can be helpful in building up a well-organized license operation.

A big organization may be handling whole lot of software and so, there might be quite many licenses and their expiry dates that will be running around in parallel. The tools employed by SLO are very useful in finding an effective solution to all the software license related problems. Here, are few actions that the tools perform to get a better hold on the software authorization and visibility:

a.    There may be hundreds of licenses roaming alongside the line in the company and so many of them might also be in use. In addition, there may be several such licenses which may not be in use, but the company would have been renewing it year after year, without actually  having appropriate knowledge about its usage. A SLO tool can be very handy in controlling this aspect, and can sort down the unused software while using it appropriately, or investing that particular amount in purchasing some other suitable software license.

b.    It is also essential to know who is using what software and whether there has been an internal theft of your purchased software or not, etc. With the proper inventory system adopted by the SLO tools, one can have the whole lot under control with regards to the software licensing.

c.    Though, the technical team may be handling the purchase and renewal of software’s; there are some customer rights and second party usage rights on the software licensing that can be better kept on track with the assistance of appropriate SLO tools.

Software license optimization provides an all-around inventory system or a ‘red alert’ system in concern with all of your software licensing and its usage. Apart from it, there are many different types of strategies and tactics designed by the SLO professionals for benefiting each and every kind of customers.

Employing suitable SLO techniques are rather hiring a good organization to do the job will end all the worries about your software licensing, its renewal process and its utilization. Thus, these tools help in gaining better visibility among others.
