CHALLENGE

The customer relied on Microsoft to run its business. Most of the Run The Business (RTB) components (email, office, OS, etc.) were on Microsoft Platform. The challenge was in gaining visibility and quantifying predictable future requirements. Without visibility of its licensing situation or needs, it was difficult to gauge its existing environment.

SOLUTION

The customer was purchasing software without a clear understanding of whether the products were the most suitable tools to meet business needs or whether the existing agreement would give the best overall pricing. XORISK leveraged its skills in Software Asset Management to review the company’s Microsoft software estate, then used this information to assist in identifying the right products that should be invested in by customer. The agreement was also changed at renewal.

OUTCOME

XORISK demonstrated the company how they could avoid spending an extra $75,000 on licenses. By partnering with XORISK, the organization has been able to gain an accurate baseline inventory of its Microsoft software assets and significantly reduce licensing costs. With better visibility of its software estate, the company can now take the necessary steps towards achieving compliance
