Asset Vision License Manager

Asset Vision License Manager enables IT to prepare an accurate, thorough, and detailed picture of license compliance without outside vendor involvement.

This frees IT to automatically, routinely manage software licenses and monitor compliance for:

  • Vendor license negotiations
  • Software license audits
  • Internal Governance, Risk, and Compliance

How does Asset Vision License Manager do this?

Asset Vision’s discovery mechanism is key to Asset Vision License Manager. It also relies on a continuously updated Cloud-based catalog that uses over a million data points for recognition.

This basic inventory is processed using an advanced set of inventory rules that calculate the real metrics against which compliance is measured—metrics on items such as processors, cores, clusters, virtualization, CALs, and much more.

Asset Vision License Manager’s powerful, flexible software license management features enable the consistent import of license entitlement sources such as:

  • Microsoft Licensing Statements (MLS)
  • Adobe Licensing Statements (ALS)
  • Large Account Reseller (LAR) purchasing history
  • Internal Purchase Order and invoice data
  • Individual purchases where invoice data is not associated with a Purchase Order.

Asset Vision License Manager enriches individual licenses, using the same catalog Asset Vision uses for inventory processing, with a consistent normalized name and a host of additional information such as license types, license metrics, MSRP information, and similar data.

In addition purchase data can be de-duplicated easily, and processed using vendor licensing rules to provide a current effective license position with a few keystrokes.

“Intelligent” license processing—unique to Asset Vision License Manager

Asset Vision “understands” how each of the different vendor license types (Software Assurance, Renewal Plans, Upgrades, Step-Ups) should be processed in order to accurately calculate an effective license position. The processing maintains a log of source entitlements with associated documentation.

Asset Vision License Manager effortlessly maintains compliance with license agreements.

  • Reports your actual inventory position. Reports on what’s installed where, and with which entitlements.
  • Saves time on software license management and entitlements. Asset Vision License Manager provides easy-to-use importing for bulk data, as well as options for manual entry.
  • Reports accurate Enterprise License Compliance Positions (ELP). Correlates inventory and entitlement positions to tell you where you stand.
  • Highlights areas of noncompliance. Easy-to-read dashboards quickly highlight areas of concern, product by product.
  • Reduces the need for experts when preparing for an audit. Automated recognition and normalization of Inventory and License terms reduces the need for deep user knowledge.
  • Rationalizes for migrations while aligning with compliance. Ensures the expense of application migration to new platforms is incurred only for those application packages genuinely required by the organization.
