PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT PLATFORM - The Key to Sustainable Transparency:
One single database provides you information on software programs, different application versions, patch levels in use, together with the license types, functions and categories this belongs to. Or in other words, full transparency with complete control.
MESSAGE TO OUR CUSTOMERS: Can you answer the following questions with certainty?
1. Do You Know Your Software
2. How many different software programs are in
use in your company?
3. How many different vendors created the
software programs you use?
4. How many software programs are in use
being on different patch levels?
If so, how much effort would you have to invest into generating this data? If you can‘t, perhaps it’s time to look for a better solution. Imagine if you could clearly identify your installed software and obtain the data prepared at the push of a button – all completely automated for more than 14,000 vendors and 1,000,000 releases!
The main benefits are:
I. Reducing software costs by sustainably lowering purchasing conditions for example bundling vendors and
software functions, locating unneeded software and verifying editions needed.
II. Optimizing operating costs by lowering support and training expenditure. Reduce maintenance and support
contracts and lower the number of incidents through a uniform patch level.
III. Guarantee security by gaining an overview of software products which are no longer
supported. Identifying unauthorized software, such as games, and profit from an automated analysis of the
installed patch level (comparison of actual to available patch version).
IV. Obtain transparency for making informed decisions on software use. Ad-hoc reports
enable a fast analysis before contract negotiations and form the basis of sound business
cases. Identify potentials and risks and meet decisions based on facts!
According to IT analyst Gartner, companies can reduce their software expenditure by up to 30% by using software
portfolio management measures. In a host of projects and service environments, we have also found that a software
analysis holds enormous potential for increasing information security.
