Data Center Management Software: Going Beyond License Compliance to Support Digital Transformation and Cloud First Strategies

Data Center Management Software: Going Beyond License Compliance to Support Digital Transformation and Cloud First Strategies

Usually, organizations have a good understanding of their license position for desktops and laptops etc., but obtaining this level of intelligence for the data center is very challenging. Licensing terms and conditions are extremely complex, which is exacerbated by intricate and sophisticated data center ecosystems. As a result, data center management software is critical to optimizing the software licenses owned by your enterprise, giving you complete and accurate visibility across all your devices and vendors.

However, old legacy tools cannot provide the scope and accuracy of data required. Equally, to cover all your devices and vendors, you will need to procure a disparate collection of tools that deliver a fragmented mix of data sources. With tools of such low caliber, getting complete visibility across your ecosystem requires a lot of manual processes, which increases the risk of human error and invalidates your outputs. What this means is you and your organization open yourselves up to the risk of non-compliant licensing and/or license overspend – potentially costing your enterprise millions.

It is also important to realize that data center management software offers value beyond license compliance and optimization, but not with older tools. With the right solutions in place you can improve the visibility and governance of cloud migration and other technological change programs, which can support your Cloud First and Digital Transformation strategies. To achieve all this, you need advanced, modern, interconnected and highly automated data center management software that integrates seamlessly with solutions that cover other devices and vendors.

In this white paper we will explore the challenges of:

  • License Compliance and Optimization
  • Multi-Platform Ecosystems
  • Increasing Complexity of License Models
  • Virtualization
  • Product Use Rights
  • Supporting Cloud Migration Projects
  • Accelerating Digital Transformation Strategies

Don’t let old, fragmented tools and data sources slow down your transformation strategies
