Datco Group and Certero sign strategic partnership

Datco Group, one of the main players in the South American digital business services market, has become the first company in Chile to sign a collaboration agreement with Certero, global specialists in IT hardware and Software Asset Management (SAM), to provide customers with license management solutions covering Microsoft, Oracle, SAP and IBM.

Datco Group will use Certero’s solutions to help customers gain full visibility of their software assets, helping them to control and manage their licenses, reducing costs, optimizing usage and minimizing the risk of non-compliance.

“Having the knowledge and control of IT assets is a vital part of any ITSM strategy. Partnering with Certero gives us a fantastic opportunity to offer a global service to handle the complex issues around SAP and IBM licensing, amongst others“, said Guillermo Navarrete, regional leader for Cloud Services in Datco Group.

Through this collaboration and outsourcing of “SAM as a Service”, Datco Group can capture installation, usage and entitlement data and automatically identify an optimal position, which can be dynamically maintained, thereby ensuring that assets are properly and efficiently managed throughout their lifecycle.

“We are delighted to have signed this agreement with one of the leading integrators in South America, renowned for delivering IT projects of the highest quality,” said Certero CEO, John Lunt.

“With software vendors increasing their audit activity, making sure you are compliant with your licensing agreements will prevent unexpected expenditure and avoid costly fines. What’s more, many organizations are either not using all the software they buy or using the wrong type of license. Though our unique architectural advantage, Certero’s solutions can help alleviate these challenges and enable organizations to stay compliant, whilst also minimizing costs and maximizing the return on their IT investments.”

Grupo Datco, uno de los principales actores en el mercado Americano de servicios digitales empresariales, se ha convertido en la primera compañía en Chile, que ha firmado un acuerdo de colaboración con Certero, especialista en soluciones para la gestión de activos de software (SAM), para proporcionar una solución conjunta a los clientes Microsoft, Oracle, SAP e IBM en la gestión de licencias.

El área de Gestión de Activos de Software del Grupo Datco, utilizará las soluciones de Certero diseñado específicamente para Microsoft, Oracle, IBM y entornos SAP para ayudar a las empresas en el descubrimiento e inventariado de los activos software permitiéndoles controlar y gestionar sus licencias de software, reduciendo los costes y optimizando el uso de licencias, además de minimizar los riesgos de incumplimiento.

“Tener el conocimiento y el control de los activos de TI es una parte vital en cualquier estrategia ITAM/SAM. Nuestra colaboración con Certero, nos da oportunidades increíbles para ofrecer un servicio global en el gobierno de las complejas relaciones de licenciamiento entorno a la concesión de licencias de SAP e IBM entre otros “, dijo Guillermo Navarrete, Líder de Servicios CLOUD Regionales del Grupo Datco.

Por medio de esta colaboración y la externalización de “SAM como servicio”, el grupo Datco puede configurar y actualizar los sistemas de licencias de diferentes contratos y proveedores de forma automática, como el inventariado del software adquirido e instalado así como sus datos de utilización, lo que le permite la gestión adecuada del ciclo de vida de estos activos.

“Estamos encantados de haber firmado este acuerdo con uno de los principales integradores del mercado de SAM y una organización reconocida en el mundo de los proyectos de TI”, dijo John Lunt, CEO de Certero.

“Con el aumento en la actividad de auditorías por parte de los proveedores de software, el  tener la seguridad de cumplir con su contrato de licencia de software evitará gastos inesperados y costosas multas. Lo que es más, muchas organizaciones no están utilizando todo el software que compran o están utilizando tipos de licenciamiento inadecuados que encarecen su coste de propiedad. Las soluciones SAM de Certero para IBM y SAP puede ayudar a mitigar estas situaciones, permitiendo a las organizaciones optimizar sus gastos en licencias de software”
