IDW and Certero sign strategic partnership

IDW, a key player in the Portuguese market in IT Consultancy, Services and Solutions for businesses, has signed a partnership agreement with Certero, specialists in software asset management (SAM) solutions, to provide customers with a joint solution focused on Microsoft, Oracle, SAP and IBM licensing management.

 

IDW will utilize Certero’s products designed specifically for Microsoft, Oracle, IBM and SAP environments to help companies discover, inventory, monitor and manage their software licenses, reducing costs, optimizing utilization and reducing the risk of non-compliance.

 

“Having the knowledge and control of IT assets is a vital part of any strategy for IT. Being ourselves a company focused in the Compliance Management market, it was natural to partner with Certero, as it gives us incredible opportunities to offer a global service to handle the complex issues around Microsoft, Oracle, SAP and IBM licensing compliance, amongst others,” said Pedro Torradinhas, IDW CTO.

 

Through this collaboration and outsourcing of “SAM as a Service”, IDW can configure and update licensing schemes of different contracts and suppliers automatically as inventorying installed, used and purchased software, allowing for the proper lifecycle management of assets.

 

“We are delighted to have signed this agreement with one of the leading integrators in the SAM market and an organization renowned in the world of Information Security and Compliance projects,” said Certero CEO, John Lunt.

 

“With software vendors increasing their audit activity, making sure you are compliant with your licensing agreement 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 licenses. The Certero MS, Oracle, IBM and SAP SAM solutions can help alleviate this and enable organizations to optimize their licensing spend.”

A IDW, um player importante no mercado português em Consultoria, Solução e Serviços TI para empresas, assinou um acordo de parceria com a Certero, empresa especialista em soluções SAM (software asset management – administração de ativos de software), para oferecer aos clientes uma solução conjunta focada na administração de licenças Microsoft, Oracle, SAP e IBM.

 

A IDW irá utilizar os produtos da Certero especialmente concebidos para ambientes Microsoft, Oracle, IBM e SAP para ajudar as empresas a descobrir, inventariar, monitorizar e administrar as suas licenças de software, reduzindo custos, otimizando a utilização e reduzindo os riscos de não-conformidade.

 

“Conhecer e controlar os ativos de TI de uma organização é vital para qualquer estratégia de TI. Sendo nós uma empresa dedicada ao mercado de Gestão de Conformidade, foi natural fazer esta parceria com a Certero, pois permite-nos oferecer um serviço global para solucionar problemas complexos no âmbito da conformidade de licenças Microsoft, Oracle, SAP e IBM, entre outras”, declarou Pedro Torradinhas, CTO da IDW.

 

Através desta colaboração e do outsourcing de “SAM as a Service” (“SAM enquanto Serviço”), a IDW pode configurar e atualizar sistemas de licenças de diferentes contratos e fornecedores automaticamente, tendo em conta o inventário de software instalado, utilizado e comprado, proporcionando uma gestão adequada do ciclo de vida desses ativos.

 

“Estamos muito satisfeitos por ter assinado esta parceria com um dos integradores líder do mercado de SAM e com uma organização de reputação mundial em termos de projetos de Segurança de Informação e Conformidade”, disse o CEO da Certero, John Lunt.

 

“Com os fornecedores de software a aumentarem a suas atividades de auditoria, garantir que está em conformidade com o seu acordo de licenças irá evitar despesas inesperadas e o pagamento de coimas dispendiosas. Mas não só: muitas organizações ou não usam todo o software que compraram ou estão a usar o tipo de licenças errado. As soluções Certero para Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, SAP e SAM podem evitar este problema e permitir que as organizações otimizem o que gastam em licenças.”
