Even managing these tools is cumbersome and a drain. As the world transitions to SaaS and Cloud, forward-thinking Asset teams are looking for solutions that help the business make better decisions and actively reduce license costs. 1E can help.

Eliminate the hidden cost of unused software

Although incumbent Software Asset Management vendors make promises of reduced software costs, most large enterprises see spiraling license costs. AppClarity has been designed from the ground up to eliminate software waste. So you can minimize the footprint of your installed software from a compliance perspective, ensuring you can negotiate the best possible deal at renewal stage, and reap the rewards of instant software savings for your SaaS investments through immediate identification and reclaim of unused software.

Reduce license management overhead

Many incumbent Software Asset Management vendors offer clunky solutions, making it difficult to manage licenses or make customizations and modifications without the need for intense manual effort. And yet, ironically, they come with a hefty price tag based their own arcane and complex modular licensing. AppClarity is different. Alongside being incredibly simple to use, AppClarity provides insight into renewal dates and handles complex license demand calculations for Oracle Processor licenses, SQL Server Core licenses, IBM PVU and more, all for a single low cost, based on how many devices you’re managing.

Make better decisions to reduce shelfware

Managing software is getting more complex, not least because of the move to SaaS and subscription-based software, and the pandemic-fueled transition to hybrid work. According to Gartner, establishing accurate requirements in advance of making commitments is the most effective way to minimize shelfware. With 94% admitted to having some shelfware with their top 3 SaaS vendors, the need for true Software Asset Intelligence is clear. 1E AppClarity provides AI-powered analytics that give insights on unused software, shelfware, version sprawl and many other use cases.

The problem with buying enterprise software is that the odds are stacked against you. You see a demo, maybe do a limited pilot and perhaps do a cookie-cutter business case on a spreadsheet with the sales guy. Once you buy, you then have to deploy and while that happens, maybe priorities change or maybe it doesn’t actually work as you thought it would. This is why most software becomes shelfware. Why does all the risk lay with the buyer?

We think that there should be a fairer way to buy software.
