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 License 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 your organisation.
Using advanced SLOE solutions such as AssetStudio® organisations can realise significant benefits such as advanced automation, in-depth analysis of license 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's SLOE Solution includes Access Control, Licensing, Licensing For Microsoft, Licensing For Adobe. The modules can work together to deliver the most powerful SLOE solution, can connect to any existing ITAM tool or can even work as stand-alone modules.
