Eliminate wastage and ensure compliance of your software estate.
Our Baseline services will audit your software estate, identify what software is in use, or crucially is not used so you can re-cycle it.
Furthermore we will analyse your license and contract entitlement to ensure that you are optimally deployed versus the software you actually own.
Baseline Services at a glance
Understanding your software compliance can be challenging. You have to manage two constantly shifting planes of data. The first is your software inventory, to which software vendors are adding new technologies and inventory files on a near daily basis. The second is your software entitlement, which is dependent on constantly changing licensing rules and contractual agreements.
Our Baseline services provide a forensic understanding of your current software deployment and usage. We then compare that to your contract entitlement and licensing use rights. We help you to identify un-used software you can re-cycle, eliminating unnecessary wastage. We also help you to identify deployments without entitlement, allowing you to remove the risk of non-compliance and the associated unbudgeted costs from your near horizon.
"By having this level of insight, CIO's can begin to identify shelfware, eliminate waste and reallocate their budgets more effectively."
The regular Baseline audits conducted by Insight have enabled us to realise a robust licensing strategy, where the number of licenses we pay for matches as closely as possible with the number of licenses we actually use
Insight reviewed our entitlement and usage levels enabling us to ensure compliance. The other really important finding was the extent to which costs could be avoided in the future based on the volumes we actually needed
