SOFTWARE & OS MANAGEMENT ENSURES YOU NEVER WASTE MONEY ON UNUSED LICENSES AGAIN.

The Challenge

Chances are your IT environment has unused, lost, or forgotten software assets that are costing your organization money or placing you at risk of license non-compliance. It’s estimated that organizations in the United States spend $12.4 billion annually on software that’s never utilized (source: Jon Brodkin, “How much money are you wasting in unused software licenses?” Network World, April 15, 2011).

Most companies rely on manual processes to track the current status of installed software and operating systems, but it is a daunting task to manually manage thousands of software applications running on thousands of servers.

The Solution

The software and operating system management capabilities found in RAMP DCIM enable you to monitor software licenses for all products as well as manage multiple product versions and reduce license costs.  You can track software down to the system and virtual machine.  This allows you to reclaim and reallocate unused licenses, maintain compliance with license agreements, and reduce costs by purchasing only the licenses you need.

Benefits

  • Get a list of all systems which have an installed software application with a single mouse click
  • Determine which software is over-subscribed, saving you money on unneeded license costs
  • Determine software which doesn’t have enough purchased licenses, keeping your company in compliance
  • Quickly get a list of systems running “unapproved” software
