IBM License Optimisation

Take Control of your IBM License Position

Optimising your IBM License Estate

IBM has grown to have one of the largest portfolios of software products. This has in turn evolved to be arguably the most complex of licensing regimes in the IT industry.

IBM also has a reputation as one of the most active and aggressive software auditors around, audits which can lead to unexpected costs in the millions.

Customers are not only faced with the challenge of developing their understanding of IBM’s licensing but also retaining individuals they have trained to have the right level of IBM license knowledge. Without these individuals, customers find themselves potentially exposed in the event of an audit and unable to avoid massive waste through unintentional mismanagement of IBM software licenses.
