Remove the risk of non-compliance and vendor audits from your clients
Ensuring that your customers are not just maintaining compliance, but actually driving down the cost of licensing is part of your obligation to them as a Service Provider. They have trusted you to deliver a service to them, and potentially you may even be managing some or all of their software estate for them. It is of paramount importance, therefore, that the advice you give them around software licensing, including the deployment and management of software is accurate, and maximises the investment they are making.
Why do I need it?
As the Service Provider for your customer you have an obligation to ensure the licensing advice and or guidance you have provided to your client does not expose them to risk. Dependent on the contracts you have in place with your clients, this obligation may carry financial liability. It would be damaging to your business, if advice that you had given your client, on an infrastructure that you are managing, was actually non-compliant with the so ware vendor use rights.
Our LCS services can form part of your on-boarding process for a new client, so that you can understand in detail the license estate you are about to manage, and crucially make informed decisions on what licenses can be re-used in a hosting environment.
