Schaumburg, IL & Tokyo, Japan - Apr 5, 2012 - Flexera Software, the leading provider of Application Usage Management solutions for application producers and enterprises, announced today that it has launched a Japanese version of its market-leading Software License Optimization solution, FlexNet Manager Suite for Enterprises. The solution provides entitlement based license management and optimization to enable organizations to reduce ongoing software licensing costs and maintain continuous license compliance.
The new Japanese language release provides localized versions of FlexNet Manager Platform, FlexNet Manager for Microsoft, FlexNet Manager for Adobe, FlexNet Manager for Symantec and FlexNet Manager for IBM. FlexNet Manager Platform now delivers a Japanese language user interface as well as software license compliance and software asset management reporting capabilities.
As enterprises adapt to the virtualization and the Cloud, they must consider the impact on their software license compliance positions. Software License Optimization is emerging as a strategic priority for organizations struggling to manage their heterogeneous environments that increasingly include a mix of on-premise, SaaS, virtualized and Cloud-based applications. As Japanese companies seek to ensure accountability and financial control over their software, FlexNet Manager Suite for Enterprises can now accommodate their business needs in their native language.
"We are delighted that Flexera Software has launched a Japanese version of its market-leading FlexNet Manager Platform," said Toshihiko Tanamachi, Chief of MD group, marketing department, at Networld. "Software compliance audits are on the rise in Japan, underscoring the need for Japanese companies to gain control of their software estates. This new release will provide tremendous value to companies seeking to reduce software spend, financial exposure and achieve continual license optimization."
"Software license optimization is becoming a critical requirement for Japanese companies seeking to gain control over their software estates and reduce software audit risk exposure. As such, it is essential for Flexera Software to deliver our market-leading solution to Japanese companies in a localized version," said Tom Canning, Flexera Software's vice president of Asia/Pacific. "We look forward to working closely with our Japanese customers to help them achieve continual license optimization of their software spend as they reduce waste associated with software under-use (shelfware) and unbudgeted expenses due to over-use (non-compliance)."
