IBM licensing rules are complex and trying to measure your license position can be difficult. The tools provided by IBM: Passport Advantage and ILMT, also require expert knowledge to understand and maintain.
We can help.
We know IBM software and their licensing rules inside out. Through our worldwide network of expert partners we can provide a range of IBM license management services that will ensure you know your license position with confidence and that you are getting the maximum value from your investment in IBM products.
Origina are not an IBM partner. Our advice is independent and focused on what delivers the best value for your business not what increase IBM’s revenue.
Whether it was a full IBM license audit or a license review it is safe to assume that it was a resource intensive, stressful and expensive experience for your organisation.
You’ve done the work, would you like to reuse this data and find out if you can reduce your IBM Support?
Using just some of the data you gathered for the license review (part numbers and quantities) we can quickly prepare a model and show you where there are opportunities to significantly reduce your IBM Support bill.

"We’re getting more than we ever did with IBM! They help us understand and transform our estate and saved us between 40% and 50% off our annual IBM software maintenance costs.."
“We did indeed have a problem yesterday right in the middle of (and directly related to) the go-live of our new warehouse. We really appreciate Origina’s great response to the call and access to expertise which sorted the problem. Things calmed down massively after that."
"The software vendors are very bullish. I find their [IBM's] arrogance direct line unacceptable; their pricing model is complex, and understanding their licensing model is complex too."
