CRAYON IBM Platinum Business Partner

The IBM licensing landscape is as vast as it is complex. Knowing how to optimise your IBM estate whilst remaining compliant can be challenging, and at the last count there were at least nine methods of licensing your IBM technology - all with entirely different connotations. 

Overall the biggest SAM challenge that businesses face is establishing an accurate effective licensing position, or present state which includes all agreements, entitlements and documentation, linked up with the actual usage profile of the users and then maintaining this on a regular basis. Whilst this may seem complex, it doesn’t have to be.

Crayon and IBM

Crayon provide customer services which help you manage your IBM estate. Crayon services help to mitigate customer risk, optimise license entitlements and reduce complexity throughout what could be a difficult and protracted audit process. Crayons ‘Continuous compliance program’ offers A Unique Optimisation Strategy for IBM Customers which is vitally important when you consider Organisations that use IBM software on average have a 25-30% chance of being randomly audited by IBM at least once, in any given year.
