IBM License Baseline
Reduce cost and risk in your IBM License Estate
IBM License Complexity
IBM’s licensing is complicated, with an abundance of aspects to consider. This complexity often leads to unknown license compliance issues that are inevitably uncovered during an audit, creating risk and unbudgeted cost for you.
Additionally, simply renewing IBM software contracts without proper commercial and technical due diligence at renewal can compound upon your situation, in many cases creating a great deal of waste, further complexity and exacerbating your compliance posture.
How Version 1 IBM License Experts Can Help
A Version 1 IBM License Baseline will not only show you where you are exposed financially should an audit occur but will also illustrate what actions you can take before you are audited.
An IBM License Baseline from Version 1 can also show you where you might avoid and reduce spend through alternative licensing and/or by deploying legitimate license compliance remediation tactics.
Drawing on our tried and tested Control Software Asset Management methodology, our SAM consultants can work with your in-house resource to implement, and then support your license compliance position going forward.
