We tended to overbuy hardware in [some] cases, underbuy in other cases and not be able to properly check all the hardware assets so we didn’t know how to reallocate them. Now we see things getting moved around in the field and have great visibility of it. So I can show how we are essentially taking cost out of the business by effectively and efficiently managing hardware by repurposing, reallocating, and only buying what we need when we need it.

Flexera One enables you to take action by discovering shadow SaaS, removing redundant applications and optimizing subscriptions based on actual usage automatically.
Optimize software from on-prem to cloud
Your software portfolio is quickly expanding into private and public clouds with BYOSL. At the same time, Microsoft is creating hybrid use rights and IBM is offering Cloud Paks. And we thought capacity-based licensing in the data center was hard. You need more than a workflow to optimize your software spend and mitigate audit risks—that’s where Flexera One comes in. Unlike other software asset management tools out there, Flexera One is the only SAM solution to solve the exponentiality of licensing. It possesses the depth, breadth, algorithms and automation required to truly create a trusted and accurate license position.
