Software License Optimisation & Entitlement (SLOE)
For organisations wishing to
progress on their SAM journey and drive efficiencies AssetStudio® can help to
bridge the gap between ITAM & Software License Optimisation &
Entitlement (SLOE), turning an Effective License Position (ELP) into an
Optimised License Position (OLP).
The first step in the SLOE process is to establish a safe and trusted
Effective Licence Position (ELP). An ELP identifies a point-in-time position but organisations today are
going beyond this, using Software License
Optimisation & Entitlement (SLOE) tools and techniques
to establish an Optimised License Position (OLP). To reach an OLP strategic
information such as software usage, advanced ITAM data provided by solutions
such as AssetStudio® as well as IT strategies for example
Virtualisation and Terminal services is needed and can be applied to the ELP,
to ensure that you have the most accurate and optimised position possible for
SLOE solutions such as AssetStudio®
can realise significant benefits such as advanced automation, in-depth analysis
of licence risk and exposure and compliance with the vendor Product Use Rights
(PUR’s). The powerful and simple to use User Interface means that with AssetStudio® it’s ‘Just a Better Experience’.
AssetStudio® is a powerful new
License Optimisation & Entitlement (SLOE) solution which can help automate the
process to establish an Effective License Position (ELP) and apply techniques
to reach the goal of an OLP, which dynamically updates.
