The Key to All Infrastructure Decisions
The licensing of software and applications is a complex and time-consuming process. Often, it can feel like software companies have deliberately designed their licensing rules and models to be as opaque and bewildering as possible.
Hear from Licensing Practice Director, Steve Reynolds, about our approach to navigating complex licensing scenarios and unlocking Microsoft investments.
Pyramid's License Advisory Practice is led by former corporate managers from companies like Microsoft who are certified licensing advisors. They've had the experience of "owning" licensing contracts -- so, whether facing a "true up" or a new licensing agreement (with Microsoft or any other software vendor), Pyramid understands how challenging the licensing process can be.
Pyramid's Licensing Advisory practice provides licensing reviews and consulting to help clients review, understand, and ultimately identify their best approach to each licensing agreement.
Pyramid's Licensing Assessment can include:
Optimize your current agreements
Near Term Tuning
Managing historic Software Assurance entitlements and the correct allocation of cores is critical to getting maximum value from your existing agreements. Pyramid Solutions' License Re-set is a near-term assessment designed to keep all product use rights aligned with the actual needs of users and assets.
The Pyramid Re-set utilizes the current MLS, as well as usage data gathered from network scanning tolls, to adjust core and base license allocations, manage proc-to-core transitions, and keep allocated positions in line with updated counts of entitlements. The Re-set can be used annually or in preparation for a new agreement.
Strategic Licensing for the Future
All businesses confront periodic moments of transition, whether via new products, partnerships, or significant structural changes. That could mean data center closures, a major acquisition, or other business changes that may affect the use rights of your software.
Pyramid has created two assessment structures for these vital decision points, when planners must organize around a longer time period. After our assessment, we'll provide a roadmap to align business strategy with infrastructure, leveraging our strong background and partnership with Microsoft.
