License Management in detail

Transparency for smart cost control

Software license fees are responsible for the lion’s share of costs in IT. Over-licensing can be just as expensive as an audit that finds unlicensed software is in use. The first and most important step to prevent either situation is to get a detailed overview of the actual software installations within the organization and the status of all related license contracts, some of which can change over time.

Gain an Overview with baramundi Inventory

the data directly from baramundi Inventory: In addition to the name, the system records how many and which applications and operating systems are installed. There is also an option to document software installed on devices not managed via baramundi.

Structured Recording of License Information

The next step is to populate baramundi License Management with the license information. For this purpose, a structured and well-designed framework is made available to license managers where they can enter relevant data from license documentation. For example, it records whether certain upgrade or downgrade rights exist, as well as other specific license characteristics. Scans and other files can be linked to the entries for better traceability.

Easy-to-Understand Reports

The baramundi License Management module creates easy-to-understand reports after reconciling inventory results with stored license information. The reports will clearly indicate what if any action is needed to correct over- or under-licensing.

Added Value through AUT and Deploy

Before purchasing any new licenses, you can check how frequently or extensively each software installation is used via the baramundi AUT (Application Usage Tracking) module. Surplus and unused installations can be uninstalled via the baramundi Deploy module. That’s a much cheaper alternative to purchasing new licenses.

Access even Without baramundi Management Center

A flexible web browser interface extends access to baramundi License Management for finance, compliance and other managers outside of the IT department without the need for a local installation of the baramundi Management Suite.
