Changing FITARA grades and IT infrastructures, AppClarity manages most complex and widespread environments in the world
New York, NY – Now providing unparalleled visibility into your entire software estate, 1E is turning heads with the latest iteration of their Software Asset Management tool, AppClarity 6.1. Offering up quality, expert, technical services to a variety of industries for over 20 years, 1E has updated AppClarity to join the ranks of their other spread of highly advanced and efficient solutions like Tachyon and their Windows Servicing Suite.
With real users like Jon Davies of Glencore International implementing the solution, positive results are pouring in. Says Davies, “AppClarity has profoundly improved our organization’s software asset management process. I am continually impressed with the level of visibility it offers into our complex software landscape.”
In its most recent, most challenging inception with the US Department of Veteran Affairs, the AppClarity solution was deployed to consolidate data from numerous IT management systems and normalize and collate all device, software and usage data. With over 500,000 endpoints, the VA is one of the most multifaceted and expansive environments in the world.
One outstanding part of this project was AppClarity’s ability to validate, unite, and consolidate 20 data sources into a single pane-of-glass view. With a brand-new normalized view of their environment, the VA was able to gain insights into their software utilization and distribution to, in one instance, negotiate $57 million in renewal savings. The VA now can automatically uninstall software based on usage and/ or organizational policies allowing them to lower their software licensing costs and improve their cybersecurity posture.
Finally, in June of 2017, the VA received an F grade for software licensing on the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform provisions (FITARA). In November of 2017, and again in May of 2018, the VA has received an A grade as measured by a third-party agency. Their change in grade happened practically overnight as AppClarity’s efficiency cuts down on time-consuming projects to see results much quicker. AppClarity is the only SAM tool on the market that was able to handle the volume and complexity of the VA’s setup.
1E customers have already implemented this new version of AppClarity, extracting value from the solution and putting it right back into their businesses. Other important features to note are:
- The ability to validate, unite and consolidate disparate data sources throughout the organization into a single pane of glass saves the business weeks and even months of engineering time.
- With over 300 million rows of inventory and usage data to process, AppClarity is able handle the processing in a short period of time on a moderately resourced server which most organizations currently have today.
- Savings such as better knowledge enabling better negotiation positions can be realized in days, not months or years.
