Licensing optimisation

The world of software licensing is complex and subject to constant change. Software manufacturers strive to maximise their sales, and although they usually call their account managers ‘advisors’, they are driven by revenue and your interests are secondary.

Q Advise helps its clients optimise their licensing position. While compliance is an aspect of this, it can be achieved in different ways. Subscription or ownership, per-user or per-device, single products or a full suite, Standard or Datacenter licences, Software Assurance or not, On-premise or Cloud, new licences or second hand? This is aside from the various possible contract forms that are offered.

If you are struggling to see the wood for the trees, No problem! Q Advise knows this forest like the back of its hand.
