Can you afford $100,000 in software license compliance penalites?

What about $500,000? or a $1 million plus? That can be the reality when you are audited by a software vendor and found to be out of compliance. If you can't identify what you own and what is installed then get prepared to open up your cheque book.

But wait .... Help is available.

Asset Vision provides you the tools to avoid these penalties.

Software License Compliance

Asset Vision License Manager is a cloud based solution that provides in-depth reporting capabilities for organisiations to manage their IT software license compliance.

Software publishers are increasingly flexing their audit rights; some analyst firms now estimate that an organisations' chance of suffering a software audit within the next 12 months is greater than 50/50.

Beat the auditors by being ahead of the game and know exactly what you have installed vs owned. Use this information to either uninstall software or purchase additional licenses.

Key Benefits
  • Reports your actual inventory position. Asset Vision reports on what's installed where, and with which entitlements.
  • Saves time in managing software licenses and entitlements. Asset Vision License Manager provides easy-to-use importing for bulk data, as well as options for manual entry.
  • Accurately reports your Enterprise License Compliance Position (ELP). Correlates inventory and entitlement positions to tell you where you stand.
  • Highlights areas of noncompliance. Easy-to-read dashboards quickly highlight areas of concern, product by product.
  • Users no longer waste time on routine tasks. Automated recognition and normalization of Inventory and License terms dramatically reduces the time previously spent on manual tasks.
  • No infrastructure costs. Since it is SaaS-based, no infrastructure is required, and it is always available with the latest release.
  • Developed to meet audit challenges now and in the future. SaaS-based means it is quick to deploy, easy to update and enhance, and is rapidly responsive to change.
  • Flexibly priced. Asset Vision SaaS subscriptions are offered with multi-year options based on a simple pricing model.

IT Optimisation & Actual Usage

Know exactly what you have, where it is and how often, or if, it's being used.

Asset Vision Optimise is unique in its metering capabilities and the only product on the market that will give you accurate usage data. Using an agent installed on each desktop, laptop and server, mouse and keyboard activity triggers a counter against the relevant software application, or web application, in use. This data is then sent to the server once a day and used in reports that will give you a deep understanding of your IT environment.

Asset Vision Optimise measures usage for applications, users, machines, Windows® captions (file name/ActiveX control/workflow), web applications, Terminal Service/XenApp environments, and local or network printers. Additionally, it measures usage for virtual desktops and virtual applications.

Asset Vision Optimise usage intelligence is unique. It measures real applications and desktop usage by measuring the intensity and type of interaction between the end-user and desktop. Keyboard and mouse activity are recorded within each active application automatically. That information is then parsed through a proprietary algorithm to determine whether the application was used, read or written from, and by which type of user.
Key Benefits
  • Eliminates overbuying of software. Reduces capital costs.
    Removes costs associated with maintaining and supporting underutilised software and hardware. Frees up people and time.
  • Optimises the outcome of vendor negotiations. Get fair value in annual software license reviews and "true-up" negotiations with an accurate view of the truth.
  • Stops unneeded additional license spending, frees up budget. Precise usage information enables the reallocation of unused or underutilised software.
  • Helps reduce excess license fees. Replace full versions of software titles with read-only/reporting/standard versions as appropriate.
  • Reduces time spent on complex configuration efforts by identifying exactly what needs to be configured. Automatically detects all running apps out of the box, helping IT focus on what matters most.
  • Enables consolidation of license keys for cost savings. License Key Discovery determines which license keys are being used or not used, saving costs.
  • Enables IT cost optimisation and transparency based on near-forensic usage data. Enables better IT and Finance decision-making.
