The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Software License Optimization and Entitlement specific requirements:

STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with…

  • The latest quick edition of the Software License Optimization and Entitlement Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals…

STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 961 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Software License Optimization and Entitlement improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 961 standard requirements:

  1. Heterogenous infrastructure; Do you have a heterogenous infrastructure, such as mainframes and distributed servers, Thin and Fat Clients, virtual machines and hardware servers, etc.?

  2. Maintenance; Do you keep all licenses under active maintenance, or at least consistent per each infrastructure element (server, etc.), such as Oracle Support, IBM S&S, Microsoft SA?

  3. Secure Data Room; Have you installed a Secure Data Room to protect your confidential data and govern the auditors; have the auditors signed an NDA (non-disclosure agreement)?

  4. There are some reporting requirements on mobile workforce, scheduling and other associated fields in excel. is it pure reports that need the existing system to cis?

  5. Given the size of the team, are there any special limits that might be exceeded (for example, distribution lists, file sizes, attachments, software or hardware licenses)?

  6. Microsoft; How many servers do you have in use with installations of major Microsoft products, such as Windows Server, Exchange Server, SQL Server, Sharepoint Server?

  7. Do we currently license any tools for static (e.g., HP Fortify, Checkmarx) and dynamic (e.g., IBM AppScan, HP WebInspect) vulnerability scanning solutions?

  8. Are you referring to a Change Management plan; a technical administration/support plan; an over-arching plan to cover both; or something else entirely?

  9. Virtualization; Do your virtualized environments comply with licensing requirements, such as for server, desktop and application virtualization environments?

  10. One of the objective states the need for integration with non-oracle applications like ibm maximo and cognos. what type of integration is required?

Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Software License Optimization and Entitlement book in PDF containing 961 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in…

Your Software License Optimization and Entitlement self-assessment dashboard which gives you your dynamically prioritized projects-ready tool and shows your organization exactly what to do next:
