Why manage licenses?

The answer to that question is quite simple. To save costs and be legally secure. Many companies have hidden costs in the form of over-licensing. Over-licensing occurs when the IT Department purchases more licenses than are actually used in practice.

Depending on the scope and license costs, this potential can make up a large part of the total IT budget. There are different reasons for over-licensing. IT administrators often lose track of license coverage and usage, and quite a few have the attitude "Better too much than too little!" This quickly leads to unnecessary software license purchases.

Our product

The state-of-the-art ACMP license management is based on the existing software environment and makes the actual as well as the target situation transparent. This process is completely transparent for business operations – there are no disruptions whatsoever.

Our practical experience to date has shown that in many companies over 30 percent of the software licenses purchased at one point are no longer in use and in all probability will never be used again. Through effective management, considerable investment and maintenance costs can be saved year after year. Active Application Usage Tracking can be implemented with ACMP AUT and thus significantly reduce costs.

A second, very large measure for saving money is the targeted reuse of already-purchased software. Instead of buying a new license, the existing license is transferred to another workstation. Those who analyze their license numbers exactly can also negotiate a possibly more cost-effective licensing model with the manufacturer.

Thanks to a targeted combination of software distribution, creating inventories, and license management, the possible degree of automation is increased once more. Consistently used automation is and remains the key to sustainable savings and efficiency increases in IT. These should be enough reasons to take a closer look at license management.

Our recommendation

Once it is known which software assets are available, the IT Department begins to exploit further potential. This includes the possibility of standardizing software, reducing the number of products used, purchasing update versions instead of significantly more expensive full versions, making installations dependent on the number of available licenses, or automatically uninstalling products when switching departments. License management takes into account the different license regulations, such as volume licenses, site/campus licenses or company licenses, as well as the different license classes and the license metrics from the full version to the upgrade to the classic client access license (CAL).
