Software Inventory with the COMPAREX SAM2GO Profiler

"It was clear after the first test run of the SAM2GO Profiler in October 2014 that this service is a great help when it comes to identifying problem areas on the software side in the IT infrastructure. The COMPAREX tool also provides clear release information that simplifies further measures in software asset management and allocations to licenses we have obtained. We can now access a clear ‘map’ of the software in use from a technical viewpoint practically at the push of a button. Even decision makers outside of IT administration have a convenient, real-time overview of the situation. The results are also used for standardization."

 Success Story

Transavia reduces costs and regains control with SoftCare

"This model meets all of our requirements. We now have one central point for all our questions regarding software licenses. We can see already that we have also reduced costs. Part of the contract is that Agile Software supplies us with the licenses without adding any extra margin. We are able to see that in the quotes and invoices we receive. Besides, Agile Software provides us with a monthly report that contains the licenses we have purchased and the savings we have realized. It strengthens the transparency of our cooperation and makes it easier for us to budget, because we know what costs we have upfront."

Transparency in license management: SAM2GO Managed Service

"An institution that is responsible for maintaining law and order should also set an example in terms of how software compliance is organized. It takes complete dedication to achieve full compliance and legal certainty in this area. COMPAREX, as our District Council’s Microsoft partner, is familiar with the special features of the public sector thanks to its many years of experience here. This is why we were quickly won over by the SAM2GO managed compliance service. We now have full transparency over our license status across all vendors at the click of a button. We have also eliminated unnecessary costs resulting from excess licenses and can rest assured that there will be no unpleasant surprises during audits."

Implementation of Veeam Backup Software solution in a banking customer

“We were able to back up things 90% faster than before, and we only need around half of the storage space. For example, a 300 GB machine could be shrunk to 130 GB. It went so fast when we made a backup on the first day that I thought we had done something wrong. I was genuinely impressed. Likewise, for Virtual Lab, the lab environment for checking backups and recoveries in minutes.”
