In Case You Haven't Heard, Ivanti Just Acquired UK-Based Concorde Solutions
It's been a busy news week. We announced on Wednesday, April 12, that we just acquired former Ivanti One partner, Concorde Solutions!
Based in Reading, U.K., Concorde helps manage complex software license agreements associated with products like those offered by Oracle, Microsoft, VMware and IBM. Their SaaS-based solutions provide increased visibility, enabling organizations to take control, reduce risk, and save money.
Last year, Concorde joined our Ivanti One partner program and we began working with them to integrate our offerings. Earlier this year, Ivanti began selling Concorde under the name Ivanti License Optimizer.
“With this acquisition, Ivanti is advancing its lead in SAM by filling a critical unmet need within the greater ITAM ecosystem,” said Ivanti CEO Steve Daly. “By bringing together Concorde’s software licensing expertise and Ivanti’s asset intelligence and endpoint management capabilities, we’re providing customers total asset management from a single point of control. Due to our close collaboration over the past year, we will be able to offer customers immediate access to the enhanced portfolio of solutions."
According to Gartner’s latest global IT spending forecast update, organizations will spend $332 billion on software in 2016. Many organizations can cut spending on software by as much as 30 percent by implementing three software license optimization best practices. The report explains: “a SAM tool can automate, accelerate and improve manual processes. It can pay dividends over manual alternatives, and can often pay for itself.”
With the help of the Concorde team, Ivanti plans to invest in ongoing development and integration to further leverage Concorde’s technology and expertise to help organizations optimize spend across client and data center applications, minimize the cost and time of completing audits and make budget cycles more predictable.
We are excited to now have the Concorde team join us to help drive our combined ITAM offerings at an accelerated pace. Welcome to the Ivanti family!
