Enterprise software vendors do not design their license policy to be easily understood. As a result of this customers often find themselves paying for products that they do not require and overpaying for the ones that they do. Software users are often unaware of vendor rules according to contractual obligations. Vendors can conduct a license audit and non-compliance can result in unexpected costs and stress for the customer.

Version 1 License Management can provide the full lifecycle of software licensing consultancy services, ensuring our client’s enterprise application license estates are fully optimised and under control with regards to cost, license compliance and complexity.

Our Approach to Mitigating the Cost and Risk of Vendor Audits

A Diagnosis or Health Check is a strategic review of your Oracle and Microsoft license estate. It identifies the risks of noncompliance and opportunities related to the management of your software assets.
Discovery, Baseline and Optimisation
Based on the Diagnosis, we may perform a detailed Discovery and Baseline to determine compliance. We will highlight areas of risk and propose optimisation and remediation.
If you need to buy licenses or re-negotiate with your vendor, we can help you create a plan. This can minimise unexpected costs and give you more benefits, creating a fit-for-future license estate.

During a typical review, we find non-compliance risks of over £5.8 million.
