Cerno is a consultancy comprised of a team of technical, contractual, and commercial experts in licensing software from the major software vendors (e.g. IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, PeopleSoft, SAP, SAS). It has been formed as a joint venture company by law firm, DAC Beachcroft LLP, and a group of software licensing experts.
Our clients range from central government; local government and universities to financial services businesses, FTSE 100 companies and multinational corporates.
All members of the Cerno team have previously worked for or against these major software vendors – we therefore understand how the major software vendors license and price-up deals. We use this expertise in conjunction with your software deployment data to agree a negotiation strategy with you which we then implement to get the recommended outcome.
