Slim Your Software Licensing Cost by Eliminating Software Waste
Have you had any plan for this New Year Resolution? Will we start with your software licensing to turn it a dream?
Over £1.7 billion is wasted every year in the UK on unused software and associated services. And this is primarily due to organisations paying for things they are not using. 70% of IT professionals don’t have knowledge of what software they are actually using in a renewal negotiation with a software vendor then they could end up buying software they don’t need.
According to the new research by Portsmouth Business School and The Business Software Centre, in Basingstoke found, local governments in the UK could save £232m a year by checking how many expensive software licences are actually being used and what each costs. Many local councils are paying out huge sums unnecessarily every year to ensure they are not breaking licensing agreements.
Does it matter to you? Of course yes, with accurate software usage metering you could identify unused software and turn this into cash which could go straight back into your IT budget.
