Using a phased approach, KPMG enables organizations to select the most appropriate Flexera tools and incrementally implement capabilities along a path leading to a mature, well-designed SAM and license optimization program.
- Managing on-premises licenses: SAM enables IT to comply with the licensing agreements included with on-premises software licenses. It also means having the processes and tools to monitor software consumption, reallocate licenses, command the right level of vendor support, and help maximize your software acquisition budget. KPMG leverages Flexera’s FlexNet Manager to help your company improve SAM and license optimization.
- Managing SaaS applications: Accurately determining usage and consumption of SaaS assets can be a challenge, but KPMG can help you address the complexities. Using Flexera SaaS Manager, KPMG can help you manage SaaS subscriptions; identify unused, underused, or abandoned licenses; detect shadow SaaS or unsanctioned SaaS; and improve your understanding of SaaS billings.
- Managing cloud costs: An estimated 35 percent of cloud computing spend is wasted via instances that are overprovisioned and not optimized.1 Dynamic consumption, fluid pricing, and lack of oversight drive the need for cost transparency and controls.
