Software License Distribution & Management
We also provide software licence distribution and management as our core business. In most situations, we undertake this activity concurrently with our other business activity of providing ICT Certification & Training.
As we are partners with many of the global technology and software vendors and organisations for the provision of training and certification of their products and services, it was a natural business extension to also distribute and manage their software licences.
A software licence is a legal contract between the user and owner of the software to use the software subject to terms and conditions set out by the owner. Types of software licences that we distribute and manage include application, operating systems, communications and systems and development tools and utilities.
The type of software licences that we distribute and managed are primarily proprietary software licences, which we distribute through a volume licensing method.
Proprietary software (sometimes referred to as retail software or shrink-wrapped software, especially when they are sold through retail outlets), are mainly sold to end-consumers based on restricted licensed to use agreement. Commonly, such software does not require professionals to configure and install them. Many of this type of software are used by consumers as well as business users on their personal computers and other devices on a stand-alone basis. Some of this type of software include Microsoft Windows and AutoCAD.
Although most proprietary software can be installed by the users and used on a stand alone basis, there are situations, particularly in a commercial environment or within large organisations where professionals are required to install and configure the software in a network environment to set various parameters in terms of granting access, priorities and allocating user status, etc.
Proprietary software covers various types of software, including applications, systems, communications, and systems and development tools and utilities.
We offer software licence distribution and management services to streamline the process of software inventory, software upgrade and licence management to increase efficiency and improve the ability to promote IT governance through software IP compliance.
Within our software licence distribution and management operations, we carry out the following activities:-
- manage software licences and related contracts;
- identify installed software products;
- capture proof of purchase and agreement terms and conditions;
- import licence record and data from multiple sources to match installed software products with existing software licences;
- organise the licences with tracking system to get reminders of upcoming renewals and upgrade of dependent licences;
- provide easy access to users regardless of their physical locations;
- consolidate software inventory across entities and departments;
- map dependencies and define relationships as necessary to support complex licensing requirements;
- facilitate development of database of up-to-date software inventory and licence compliance information to ensure that licences owned are aligned with software used and to validate their compliance; and
- produce software licence compliance report and status.
Essentially, we distribute and manage the following software licenses:-
