January 16, 2018 // San Diego, CA // Cireson, world leaders in Microsoft Service & Asset Management solutions, today announced the launch of True Software Asset Management, a beautiful and simple solution to optimize spend, ensure compliance, and improve the overall understanding of your Microsoft license estate. True Software Asset Management helps with every stage of the SAM journey, from asset discovery and management, to data normalization with the Global Content Library, through the provision of an end license position (“ELP”), leveraging the License Calculation Engine. With the data you need at your fingertips, everyone in the organization can make informed decisions for Enterprise Agreement renewals, contract negotiations, as well as audit preparation and defense.
“A proactive and continuous approach to managing software assets is vital to reduce IT spend,” said Shaun Ericson, Co-Founder, Cireson. “With nearly 25% of software going unused, organizations are wasting tens of thousands of dollars every year. True Software Asset Management aggregates and normalizes software asset data, providing you with a complete picture of your license estate. With accurate data, organizations can improve the audit and renewal negotiation process and prevent unbudgeted costs.”
Built on the Cireson Platform, True Software Asset Management can be used independent of Microsoft System Center, or together with Microsoft Configuration Manager. Leveraging native connectors for Configuration Manager, Active Directory, Office 365, MLS, and MVLS reports, organizations can schedule automatic data imports to ensure a consistent and accurate picture of their asset data.
“With the adoption of Office 365 and other cloud-based applications, it’s becoming increasingly complicated to track usage and costs across the organization,” continued Kris Tibbetts, Senior Product Manager, Cireson. “True Software Asset Management provides visibility into which applications are actually being used by employees, identifies areas of overspending, and flags non-compliant licenses, reducing the risk of an audit.”
True Software Asset Management complements the existing suite of Service and Asset Management solutions from Cireson, including industry-leading Analyst and Self-Service Portals for Microsoft Service Manager, the forthcoming True Control Center for Microsoft Configuration Manager, and Cireson Asset Management for Microsoft Service Manager.
