Solution Overview

Managed Service Providers (MSP) and IT departments face many challenges when ensuring license compliance, trying to save on license costs and managing the application installations. In the worst case scenarios, the penalties of license violations may be costly. The operational work involved in license audits and staying compliant may require heavy resourcing and in many cases have an impact to other operations.
