IBM Informix software licence review

Software licensing is not always as simple as it should be. The penalties for being under-licensed can be extremely severe and being over-licensed means that your company is paying too much and, in some cases, this can run into millions.

An IBM licence review ensures that your company is correctly licensed. Being correctly licensed for the software you use is essential if you are going to control software licence and maintenance costs. It also means that your company gets all of the value that it can out of the products that it has bought.

We are one of the few IBM Business Partners in the UK authorised to sell IBM software licences and support through both IBM’s Software Value Plus programme and IBM’s Application Specific Licensing programme. This accreditation is recognition of our commitment to, and skills with, IBM software products.

IBM software licensing audit

As an IBM software user, you may from time to time be asked to participate in a software audit. If your company is unfamiliar with the audit process, then this may not be a straightforward exercise. More importantly, the penalties for being under-licensed can be extremely severe and may even extend to criminal action.

The purpose of our licence audit is to provide an independent assessment of your company’s software compliance. The purpose is not to establish the most efficient licensing approach, but to show what an IBM audit would uncover.
