Insight's baseline services help you to monitor what software you have deployed versus what software you are legally entitled to be using. As well as identifying your areas of non-compliance, or indeed of over licensing, that exists in your environment.
Add clarity with Insight
Having grown your business providing world class IT services to your clients, it is essential to ensure you are meeting compliance with your own obligations to your software vendors. Particularly so in the metronome of a monthly reporting cycle, ensuring the correct processes and record keeping are in place is essential to maximise your return on the investments you make in the software that powers your business.
Furthermore avoiding potentially costly outlays during a vendor driven audit, is a key benefit of a better managed software estate. Through the Insight Service Provider Baseline Service our experts are able to add the clarity you need, via a robust set of forensic discovery and analysis services.
Why do I need it?
The chances of a Service Provider (SP) being audited by a software vendor has risen sharply in recent years. As has the number of services SPs are able to offer their clients, and with it the complexity of the licensing required to underpin the services.
Software vendor agreements are now more complex than ever, whilst new software titles are being developed and added to software inventory on a near daily basis. You can gain a competitive advantage by knowing with certainty that you are not overpaying for licenses you are not using, as well as removing any future risk of unbudgeted audit costs.
What benefits can I expect?
A reduction in risk, by getting on the front foot, and understanding the true software license position for your organisation. As well as being able to accurately optimise your software usage, rather than having to rely on best estimates.
