Optimize technology spend

Invest in exactly what you need, at the precise moment you need it, and track license usage and expiration to avoid overspend or true-ups.

Optimize Screen Shots

Whether your environment includes tens, hundreds, or thousands of devices, an accurate inventory of all devices and their status is just the starting point. A key goal of managing your technology portfolio is to optimize your spend. It’s critical to have enough technology to keep your employees productive and your business competitive, while eliminating unnecessary spend.

Bottom line?

Having a tight grip on how you manage your constantly changing IT inventory will not only save you a great deal of money. It will also keep your employees more productive while making sure compliance and their associated audits are managed quickly and easily.

Have one system of truth for all your technology spend

Know what you’re spending and why – from a comprehensive and fully integrated single pane of glass. Be able to report on cost per additional user, cost per specific business unit, location, or other identifying attributes. Make better strategic purchasing decisions.

Track software license use

  • Track desktop and SaaS license contracts.
  • Track installed desktop software to avoid true-ups and fines for over-utilization.
  • Track SaaS software utilization with workflow checks for users that have not logged into SaaS software for which they have a license.
  • Automatically deactivate or reclaim a license if a user has not logged in for whatever time period you designate.

Eliminate duplicate software

Use Oomnitza’s built-in software catalog to group your software by category and by user to identify unnecessary duplicates. Oomnitza provides a built-in software catalog that enriches software data such as category.

Optimize cloud spend

Visualize all your public cloud instances by type, launch/start times, and reserved status. Start and stop instances through workflow rules such as:

  • If a VM has an unsafe security group, automatically stop the instance.
  • If a VM only needs to run 8 hours per day, automate start/stop on off-hours to reduce spend.
  • If a user is offboarded and was the owner of a VM, automatically stop or re-assign.

Identify devices without an owner

Besides reflecting a security problem, lack of identification can also result in incorrect charge-backs.

Avoid compliance-driven risk through better real-time inventory management. 

Identify lost and stolen devices

With an orchestration workflow, you can see if a device has not checked in for a number of days you choose but is assigned to an active user. You can then notify the user and your service desk to check the device’s status and make financial and security adjustments as required.

Accurately forecast refreshes and end-of-life

  • Older devices require more IT time, introduce security risks, and reduce employee productivity from slower systems and software incompatibility .
  • Forecasting devices due for a refresh helps keep employees productive and provides better negotiating power with vendors.
  • Ensure that devices are depreciated correctly.
