Cerno’s technical team have all worked in software auditing for many years and understand the licensing practices of software vendors. Their specialist knowledge means they have a clear understanding of the range of technical and commercial options that exist (including those not published by the vendors), options for software optimisation, and the future strategy of the software vendor. They are familiar with the common misinterpretations of a typical deployment assessment, as well as with commercial terms that have been achieved by other users.
- in-house expertise in software license agreements of all the major vendors
- detailed understanding of their commercial parameters and issues;
- leading technical expertise to assess your true current deployment and, importantly, how small changes to configuration can reduce your costs.
Cerno is therefore able to:
- optimise commercial details of agreements with software vendors;
- optimize deployment including virtualization;
- identify contractual exposure;
- mitigate potential risks to clients
