Schaumburg, IL - Jul 9, 2013 - Flexera Software, the leading provider of Application Usage Management solutions for application producers and enterprises, announced today the unveiling of a cloud-based version of its market-leading Software License Optimization solution, FlexNet Manager Suite for Enterprises. FlexNet Manager Suite On-Demand provides software license management functionality to enterprises seeking to reduce software spend and maintain license compliance through a low overhead software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering.
"While on-premises applications will always be part of the IT mix, many organizations see operating expense (OPEX) and capital expense (CAPEX) benefits in purchasing software through a SaaS-based delivery model," said Alan Swahn, Vice President of Product Management at Flexera Software. "FlexNet Manager Suite On-Demand will enable these organizations to implement best-in-class Software License Optimization, while enjoying the benefits of reduced infrastructure requirements, accelerated deployment times, lower learning curves, and a lower initial investment."
FlexNet Manager Suite On-Demand's web-based user-interface provides anytime, anywhere access to critical Software License Optimization functionality including:
"With as much as twenty-five percent of an organization's software budget wasted on shelfware, poor license allocation, and responding to audits, CIOs know that to realize substantial savings software inventory alone isn't sufficient. They must connect the dots between software procurement, inventory, usage, and vendor entitlements for each application in order to maintain license compliance and reduce ongoing costs. The complexity of getting an accurate license position in a physical and virtualized environment across diverse and changing vendor license models has driven Software License Optimization to prominence as a new category in the industry," said Swahn. "With the addition of FlexNet Manager Suite On-Demand, organizations can identify and recover wasted software spend by leveraging our industry standard solution through the delivery model of their choice - on-premises or in the cloud."
