How to Manage IBM Licensing Like A Boss
Managing compliance with IBM licensing is a minefield and can easily lead to confusion and unplanned costs.
The constant evolution of IBM license models is a challenge to all IT stakeholders. Staying one step ahead can be time-consuming, resource-heavy, and costly, especially when dealing with all the licensing complexities that IBM brings with it.
You may be asking some or all of the following questions:
- Can we be fully compliant with the IBM license agreements?
- Are we using all the IBM software products that are deployed?
- Can we achieve maximum usage from our existing investment in IBM Software?
- We’ve received notification of an IBM license audit. What do we need to do?
- We have Passport Advantage can we still use License Optimizer for Clients and Servers to manage my compliance?
- We have deployed ILMT for sub capacity but have no idea of our current position
- We don’t want to use ILMT, what are the alternatives?
