License Management will help organizations optimize their investments in licenses

It helps bring peace of mind to business stakeholders who have concerns about license compliance or simply want to get a higher quality return on their investments in SAP software.

Security Weaver announced today that its License Management product has achieved SAP certification as powered by the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform. The SAP® Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that License Management integrates with SAP NetWeaver to provide organizations with a more efficient and comprehensive license management process.

With companies recently in the news for large penalties for failure to pay indirect licensing fees, many organizations are concerned about how well they are managing their own software licenses. Security Weaver’s product helps organizations to more efficiently manage their direct and indirect user licenses, maintain full compliance, and avoid costly surprises.

License Management from Security Weaver shows license consumption trends, predicts compliance gaps, helps to manage indirect user licenses, and continuously optimizes the allocation of direct user licenses. It eliminates work using a customizable policy-driven allocation engine which automatically assigns the correct license type to each user. Because of complex assignment rules, organizational change, and inefficient manual processes, user licenses are often inappropriately assigned and require periodic reconciliation, which may take hundreds of man hours. With Security Weaver’s solution, not only can organizations maintain continuous compliance and forecast additional license purchases, but they can be confident that their users have been assigned the appropriate user license and that they are getting the highest returns on their investments in SAP solutions.

In addition to automating license reconciliation activities, supporting budgeting and forecasts, and optimizing the return on investments in SAP software, Security Weaver’s solution provides detailed reports for executives. Those tasked with managing SAP license audits or negotiating support contracts benefit from the information provided by License Management. During audits, staff distractions are minimized because License Management provides detailed information on users, user activities and other license relevant metrics across SAP software instances and procurement contracts. Because it addresses variations in an enterprise’s licensing contracts, License Management simplifies contract management, highlights the most favorable terms across contracts, eliminates tedious tasks associated with mapping individual contracts to particular consumption groups, and enables substantial long-term savings.

"This solution is one we are especially proud of because it helps bring peace of mind to business stakeholders who have concerns about license compliance or simply want to get a higher quality return on their investments in SAP software," said Terry Hirsch, CEO of Security Weaver. "At Security Weaver, our goal is to enable management and administrators to make sound decisions that maximize their resources and lower their costs. License Management does that."

Security Weaver License Management supports the SAP ERP application, versions 4.6c to 7.
