The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) has been at the cornerstone of enterprise data strategies for over 20 years. EDW systems have traditionally been built on relatively costly hardware infrastructures. But ever-growing data volume and increasingly complex processing have raised the cost of EDW software and hardware licenses while impacting the performance needed for analytic insights. Organizations can now use EDW offloading and optimization techniques to reduce costs of storing, processing and analyzing large volumes of data.

EDW systems have traditionally been built on relatively costly hardware infrastructures. But ever-growing data volume and increasingly complex processing have raised the cost of EDW software and hardware licenses while impacting the performance needed for analytic insights. Organizations can now use EDW offloading and optimization techniques to reduce costs of storing, processing and analyzing large volumes of data. Getting data governance right is critical to your business success. That means ensuring your data is clean, of excellent quality, and of verifiable lineage. Such governance principles can be applied in Hadoop-like environments. Hadoop is designed to store, process and analyze large volumes of data at significantly lower cost than a data warehouse. But to get the return on investment, you must infuse data governance processes as part of offloading.

Even if one minute a day is lost to productivity drains because of PC horsepower allocation to security scans and remediation, the cost over a year across a medium-sized enterprise adds up quickly. A 10,000 employee operation would face over $10M in direct productivity losses alone. As an early trigger for expensive PC hardware refresh is an onslaught of help desk calls, many companies find that they can actually extend the hardware refresh cycle out another 12–24 months simply by employing a security solution that does not tax the PC as heavily. The indirect costs associated with brand reputation and opportunity losses add untold thousands of dollars per year as well. Further, some institutions under green initiatives monitor power consumption related to security measures favor solutions that use less energy. As such, forward-thinking enterprises are looking beyond the software license fees when evaluating security software alternatives.

I don’t think it’s too much at all. However, I would recommend including some bullets calling out key points from the paper and a distinct call-to-action. Something like this: At the start of every year, more than 80% of your annual IT spend is likely already committed – in the form of depreciation, maintenance, and support for infrastructure – inhibiting your ability to bring new capabilities to the business. Making matters worse, these dollars often lie hidden in the form of inefficient or ill-advised software license management. If you don’t have the luxury of a mature vendor management function, you probably struggle to see the full picture of your future maintenance costs. This guide will give you the tools to assess your IT spend by identifying potential blind spots and uncovering the benefits of ELAs and TLAs. Some blind spots may include: • Limited visibility • Productivity barriers • Risk exposures Download now to learn how to formulate a plan to yield savings--savings that fa

The majority of enterprise software is now consumed via SaaS or cloud deployments. Despite a perception of simplicity in software acquisition, many cloud contracts require all the rigor and due diligence of contracts for on-premises licensed software. The Enterprise Cloud Buyer's Bill of Rights provides a tool for clients and vendors to change the tenor of contract negotiations from user subservience to an equal and collaborative long-term partnership.

In a perfect world, managing the discovery of software assets, the capture of license entitlements and optimization of an organization’s software usage and compliance situation would be a single-click operation.

Software piracy, whether accidental or malicious, is a problem for software vendors as these activities can directly affect the bottom line. Organizations that use software are affected as well. Along with rising software prices, they can face stiff fines and other costs for noncompliance with software licenses. This can come as a result of an audit that software vendors are more inclined to initiate in a lackluster economy. This white paper will discuss actions to take before, during and after an audit. As well as outline the best ways for the enterprise to remain compliant with software licenses.

All organizations require software systems to conduct daily operations. These strategic enterprise assets are often acquired or created in isolation of each other as an organization grows, particularly for those that provide services rather than physical products. Over time, these systems become complex, overlapping and highly dependent on one another, so more effort must be expended to discover the full effects of any system change. The ability of an entity to update, replace or improve the overall capabilities of the enterprise can become severely impaired. Moreover, support and administrative costs for these critical assets inevitably grow to be a major burden. Add to all this the need to control licensing, follow the organization’s policies and ensure security for the internal network, and it becomes clear that some manner of oversight is required for the enterprise to be successful.

The way companies use and pay for customer relationship management (CRM) software has changed significantly over the past decade. Moving from a predominantly perpetual license-based system, where companies paid a large up-front sum and then smaller annual maintenance fees, CRM software providers are now moving towards monthly or annual subscription fees to access CRM software on the Internet.

A software audit can be either an internal process, executed by an in-house team or consultants, or it can be done externally, by the vendor. If done internally, the results are used by the organization to check what software is installed across the network, how the software is being used and how this usage compares with the entitlements owned by the organization. If you haven’t already been audited—get ready; it’s not a case of if, but when.
