Gain Licensing Control in the Cloud
Adopt the full lifecycle of cloud licensing services to maximise your investment in the cloud
Cloud is no longer a buzz word in the IT industry, it is a key business consideration. The benefits of cloud for enterprises are undeniable – from on-demand pricing to global distribution, from deployment of new servers in seconds to no longer having to manage any physical hardware. Cloud has changed the game.
The shift to cloud computing has changed how we view our software and license assets. There are new challenges that should be addressed from a SAM perspective when licensing in the cloud. Version 1 can help you address those challenges by adopting the full lifecycle of cloud licensing services. From measuring what license assets you have to supporting your cloud transition and ultimately managing your software assets in the cloud. This lifecycle can not only help to achieve your cloud objectives, but also help to avoid unnecessary license cost prior to cloud migration and optimise license cost once in the cloud.
