SECOPTENA - we support License Managers

- to establish a corporate license management for network licenses
    (Concurrent Use / Floating Licenses)

Most business processes of enterprises heavily rely on commercial standard software. The implementation of these business processes with information technology (IT), is primarily focussed on the competitive advantage for the core business. The manner and the scope of the utilization of this software is governed by license contracts or End User License Agreements (EULA) between the manufacturer of the software (licensor) and the enterprise (licensee).

In particular in engineering environments the software cost per workstation is quite high. As a result a license model is typpically applied for these kinds of applications where several users or workstations share a software license, a so called network / concurrent use / floating license.

The process of selecting and purchasing such software applications is focussed mainly on the benefit for the business.

At the same time such an IT solution has to be permanently available and implemented cost-effectively and the usage has to be compliant to general and internal policies.

As a consequence this causes competition in three major topic areas:

Productivity - Cost - Compliance
Productivity - Cost - Compliance

The cost factors as well as the potential risks of  compliance issues and interuptions of the production process justify the implementation of the responsible corporate role of a License Manager to care about these topics.

  • Generation of License Balance Sheets and Compliance Reports
  • Active involvement in the procurement process
