Software asset management (SAM) professionals can gain greater clarity over their IBM software licenses and entitlements by switching to Origina.

Software Asset Management

The contracts and legal language surrounding IBM software use can cloud oversight on licenses and entitlements for software asset managers. Origina's IBM licensing experts provide clarity to help companies protect themselves ahead of or during an audit.

Gain Clarity On IBM Licenses and Entitlements

Varying licensing metrics, ambiguous contracts and a lack of expertise in dealing with IBM can create uncertainty over a company’s license and entitlement usage. This creates unnecessary risk that can lead to millions in fines should an audit take place. Origina’s IBM licensing and entitlement experts provide clarity over usage and what a business actually owns and is entitled to use in order to assuage fears over non-compliance with IBM contracts and mitigate the resulting risk.

Understand IBM License and Entitlement Inventory

Companies with vast IBM digital estates can face difficulty in maintaining accurate license counts and entitlement usage. Product owners and licensing specialists join and leave the business, contracts change and new technologies enter the fold, obscuring usage of the applications they’ve replaced. Origina’s IBM licensing and entitlement experts work hand-in-hand with software asset managers to develop a comprehensive, accurate view of the company’s IBM inventory to ensure it remains compliant with its IBM International Program License Agreement (IPLA).
