Complete Software Management Service

Managing the software license lifecycle can be difficult when you’re unsure what licenses you need, what licenses you have, when they are due to expire or whether they still serve a purpose. Amongst these challenges, there is also risk of non-compliancy and significant fines.

Whether a perpetual, subscription or consumption-based model is right for your organisation, our complete software management services will help you regain control over your software estate and eradicate risks associated with software deployment.

Perpetual

Perpetual licensing is a traditional licensing model for the purchase of software, requiring the user to pay an upfront license fee for the on-going right to use the software. Some licenses can be purchased with maintenance which covers support and provides access to updates for an additional fee updates.

Subscription

A subscription software license allows you to lease software at a lower upfront cost by paying on a per user, per device or server fee, for either 1 or 3 years. Prices are often based on the subscription length and depending on the vendor, may include access to support services and updates as they are released. You do not own the license at any point and at the end of the subscription period you will need to renew or uninstall the software.

Consumption

A consumption based model allows you to adjust your costs to reflect actual usage to avoid overpaying for services, eliminating wasted, over-provisioned capacity reservations.

Complete Licensing Management

Our complete licensing management services will help you better understand your software estate and licensing risk. We have in-house, accredited licensing specialists who will advise you on software upgrades, licensing options and renewals and through detailed reporting, will maintain license entitlement and identify any unused licenses.

Our approach is truly flexible, allowing you to specify the software vendors you prefer to work with. We fully manage your licenses on your behalf, providing transparency, cost predictability, compliance and control throughout.

Software Services

Our software services are purposely designed to help alleviate challenges in-house. We apply our own knowledge with the products and experience of our partners to help define a software strategy that manages spend and matches your business objectives.

Software Roll Out

Whether you intend to roll out your new software to your entire base, to a small subset of users or in parallel with legacy code paths, we will guide you along the process by setting clear, measurable objectives. We will review your existing business workflows and processes to identify where change will occur and help define new workflows and processes following successful rollout.

Software Migration

When planning to move to a dynamic datacentre, software migration is a critical consideration but needn’t be a complex process. Whether freshly installing applications, hosting them internally, externally, moving to the cloud or virtualising them, we support your migration project by firstly understanding how you are currently managing your application, users and data. From here we can plan, design and implement your migration following the most appropriate methodology.

User Adoption and Training

We help you to get the most from your software investment by offering step by step guidance to ensure user adoption across your organisation. We also help to accelerate on-boarding times and increase software usage whilst aiming to alleviate user resistance at every stage.

Patch Management

We help protect your servers, workstations and remote computers from vulnerabilities and keep them up to date with the latest security patches and software updates by applying effective patch management solutions.

Software Asset Management

Software Asset Management (SAM) involves the end to end management of software applications. From purchase, optimisation and deployment, through to maintenance, utilisation and disposal, SAM automates many of the tasks required to ensure compliance and cost control.

SAM and License Compliance

We deliver SAM and licence compliance reviews, providing you with an Effective Licence Position (ELP). This allows you to make more informed licence procurement decisions based on your actual needs, whilst strengthening your position when negotiating license agreements.

SAM as a Service

SAM as a Service is a single hosted, managed service, giving you the ability to take control of your software and technology assets. We are experienced working across a multitude of configuration solutions and work with your preferred discovery tool.

We conduct license audits from all major vendors so that we can easily identify missing data and avoid negative assumptions from the auditors.
