Permessa IM License Auditor for IBM Lotus Sametime Quickly Counts Licenses, Meets Audit Obligations with Less Effort and Verifies that Enterprises Pay Only for Needed Lotus Sametime Licenses

With Permessa IM License Auditor, enterprises will be able to get results in minutes for a task that used to take hours or days.

Permessa IM License Auditor, announced today, makes the IBM Lotus Sametime true-up (license count) faster and easier, which ensures that enterprises are not paying for too many or too few Lotus Sametime licenses. Accurate counts also guard against software license compliance audit true-up surprises that may cause unplanned license payments.

"Some companies pay for too many or too few Lotus Sametime licenses because they rely on estimates, rather than manually counting actual Lotus Sametime users for the periodic mandatory license audits. If they do manually count users, they are wasting resources on a cumbersome, time-consuming process," said Stefan Mehlhorn, CEO of Permessa Corporation. "With Permessa IM License Auditor, enterprises will be able to get results in minutes for a task that used to take hours or days."

Permessa IM License Auditor is a native Lotus Notes application (NSF) that produces fast, accurate counts of the Lotus Sametime users across an entire enterprise or for selected servers. The report displays counts by client application and version number for detailed license tracking and planning. The result is that enterprises can be ready for a license audit or true-up with three simple steps. This enables them to reduce costs and improve planning with exact license statistics.

Producing an audit report requires three simple steps after installation:

  •     Auto-Discovery: Finds Lotus Sametime servers and users across the global enterprise or for selected servers.
  •     Collect Data: Launches an agent to collect the pertinent (STLOG.NSF) information into Permessa IM License Auditor.
  •     Audit Results: In many cases, an entire week's worth of data will be collected, analyzed and reported in less than an hour.

Permessa IM License Auditor is available for a 45-day free trial, which is more than long enough to meet an audit (true-up) obligation.    For more information visit:
