Do you know the licensing implications of cloud services or moving between on- and off-premise software solutions? Here are some quick thoughts on the subject from my video at HP Discover Barcelona:



Make your move with HP’s Software Licensing Advisory Services for Cloud. Listen to this podcast for a more in-depth discussion on this topic:



• Cost—Have you already incurred unnecessary expense on new cloud licenses and services?

• Control—Do you believe you are locked into cloud with limited or no options for return to on-premise?

• Compliance—Are you uncertain about tracking and managing license compliance in this new style of IT?



Consumption of cloud-based computing services presents a paradigm shift from traditional IT procurement.  It brings a unique set of risks and challenges compounded by the lack of accurate knowledge of contractual and licensing implications when moving to the cloud.



Today’s hybrid environment of traditional, cloud, and mobile solutions only increases the challenges of managing and optimizing a software portfolio. You need a partner with a comprehensive portfolio of services for cloud to meet your enterprise’s evolving needs. The necessary experience and expertise must enable you with relevant licensing advice at the right time.



HP Software Licensing Advisory Services for Cloud is delivered by the HP Software Licensing and Management Solutions (SLMS) team. We have the capability and experience to provide analysis based on more than 30 years of experience as a globally accredited software licensing reseller and Software Asset Management partner.
