It’s impossible for IT teams to manage budget cost optimization without a clear understanding of what IT assets they have, where they are, and how they’re being used. The issue is compounded and risks increase as users self-source solutions to quickly address their requirements. This lack of data and understanding leads to slow migration and over provisioned services that impact TCO and ROI.
Scalable’s platform utilizes intelligent agentless discovery to find and catalog hardware and software assets across the IT estate, irrespective of platform or location.
Uniquely, the solution enables the capture of granular, deep dive usage data needed to support modernization, and migration and transformation initiatives, enabling faster delivery and significant cost savings
Use detailed usage data to buy and renew only the subscriptions you need. Inventory & usage data gives you the power to re-negotiate – optimize what’s truly needed across the organization.
Stop paying for SaaS applications you’re not using. Identify and eliminate or reassign unused or underutilized software licenses. Remove unnecessary duplication and overlap – whether it is on-premise or SaaS.
Different license tiers of both workstation and SaaS applications have vastly different costs. Rationalize license tiers and give employees the functionality they need, downgrading if appropriate.
Greater visibility of end-user environments including level-0 fault awareness allows support services to get ahead of issues before they occur, improving the employee experience and reducing the burden on internal support.
In both on-premise and cloud environments, it’s easy to spin up virtual machines for a long time, or utilize capacity for a specific project. In many cases, IT teams may not have gone back and audited if things are still needed. By doing this ‘look back,’ organizations typically see the ability to reclaim 10% of resources.
Create scenarios to compare costs at various levels of provisioning and subscription.
Address financial, security and productivity risks – find and manage unwanted applications – identifying who, where and how much the software is being used.
