“Having the knowledge and control of IT assets is a vital part of any strategy for IT. Being ourselves a company focused in the Compliance Management market, it was natural to partner with Certero, as it gives us incredible opportunities to offer a global service to handle the complex issues around Microsoft, Oracle, SAP and IBM licensing compliance, amongst others,” said Pedro Torradinhas, IDW CTO.
Through this collaboration and outsourcing of “SAM as a Service”, IDW can configure and update licensing schemes of different contracts and suppliers automatically as inventorying installed, used and purchased software, allowing for the proper lifecycle management of assets.

The Certero MS, Oracle, IBM and SAP SAM solutions can help alleviate this and enable organizations to optimize their licensing spend.”
