Xpandion Introduces Next Generation Product to Optimize Licensing for SAP
The New Version of ProfileTailor™ LicenseAuditor Delivers Significant Savings and Greater Control
Tel Aviv, Israel, September 10, 2013: Xpandion Ltd., the leading provider of software solutions for enterprise security, GRC, and licensing, announced today the newest version of its popular solution for SAP licensing. This version adds new optimization opportunities to the successful edition of ProfileTailor LicenseAuditor that awarded the company the “Cool Vendor” title in IT Asset Management by leading analyst firm Gartner in 2012. Adding recent best-practices, vast experience from the field, and new methods for license optimizations, ProfileTailor LicenseAuditor Enterprise now delivers enhanced capabilities for allocating and managing SAP licenses within, and across, organizations.
Focused on protecting its customers’ SAP investment, Xpandion enables each department within an organization to take ownership over its licensing allocation and thus its overall licensing budget. Large companies can benefit from the confidence of knowing exactly how many of each license type is being used by each department, which helps the company to control budgets and roll over the exact costs of their SAP licenses to each organizational unit. They also have the advantage of multi-level pricing optimization options, allowing their subsidiaries to allocate their own licenses according to internal pricing structure while using different pricing-rules for each sub-unit. Each subsidiary can log in to its own system, view only its relevant license data and improve its license models. Organizations can then receive a full view of the system either by subsidiary, group of subsidiaries or entire company.
“With the unique ability to learn each user’s behavior patterns on a continuous basis, ProfileTailor LicenseAuditor Enterprise automatically and accurately recommends the best suited licensing plan, providing opportunities to save on overall costs across all departments and units within an organization,” explained Moshe Panzer, CEO of Xpandion. “Additionally, because of our experience over the last three years executing licensing inspections using ProfileTailor LicenseAuditor, we’re now able to supply a vast amount of best-practice rules to comply with SAP’s licensing scenarios and offer our customers the confidence that comes from this solid foundation.”
ProfileTailor LicenseAuditor Enterprise presents a powerful, field-proven solution for controlling the usage and cost of current and future SAP licenses, easily and quickly. It delivers automated identification of dormant, underused, misclassified and duplicate SAP license accounts, providing an organization with a simple and clear view of its SAP licensing status, which is especially beneficial when ordering new usernames and prior to purchasing additional licenses.
