Flexera’s Software License Optimization solution was judged to be the Best Vertical Market Managed Service Solution in the first-ever UK Managed Services Awards competition. The award winners were named at the Managed Services Awards celebration following the ninth annual Managed Services and Hosting summit (MSH) held in September in London.

Sponsored by IT Europa and Angel Business Communications, the Managed Services Awards recognize excellence in the dynamic managed services sector of the information and communications technology industry. The awards showcase the best examples of real projects that demonstrate just how effective and productive managed services can be in organizations. Each award recognizes the growth of essential skills in the industry, while highlighting the real value being delivered by solutions within the category.

Announcing the award, IT Europa noted that Flexera’s Software License Optimization solution “assesses the current state of asset management maturity, builds the justification for a SAM and license optimization program, and develops best practice SAM processes and roadmaps for program implementation.”

Next Generation Software Asset Management
Flexera’s Software Asset Management (SAM) and Software License Optimization solutions are the recognized leaders among tools that help enterprises gain visibility and control of IT assets, reduce ongoing software costs and maintain continuous license compliance. The Flexera Software License Optimization solution takes traditional software asset management to the next level to help organizations realize ongoing cost savings of between 5 and 30 percent on software spend.

Unlike traditional SAM tools on the market, Flexera’s Software License Optimization solution is uniquely in three fundamental ways:

  1. Uses complete built-in product use rights by vendor to automatically calculate license position, simulate cost impacts of changes, optimize contracts and analyze spend.
  2. Recognizes complex virtual environments, performing license consumption calculations for virtual applications, virtual desktops (VDI), virtual machines (VM), hard partitions and sub-capacity licensing.
  3. Produces continuous, automated license consumption analytics in a multi-vendor software environment, which virtually eliminates surprise true-up fees after an audit.

We work hard on customer-centric innovation and are proud to be recognized as the Best Vertical Market Managed Service Solution. Many thanks to IT Europa and Angel Business Communications for the honor.
