Licensing Tune-Up

Know how your software environment needs to be licensed and identify optimizations before a provider true-up, new purchase, contract renewal, or as part of audit readiness.


Know Where You Stand

Software licensing is complex, seems to change all the time, and comes in an array of confusing bundles. An example of such woud be, If you bought SQL Server licenses five years ago, but didn’t maintain Software Assurance (SA), it may (or may not) be licensed correctly for deployment in a virtual environment. Windows Server Standard licensing used to require mapping to hardware attributes, but their policy change in October 2022 can free up many licenses. Microsoft 365 subscriptions purchased in an Enterprise Agreement (EA) have different rights than those purchased through a Cloud Solution Provider (CSP).
