Software licensing, and especially enterprise software licensing, is a vital part of our services; We already understood that software licensing is complex and that establishing continuous software compliance requires in-depth expertise. B.lay was key to provide a solid insight in your license and deployment situation, technically and financially. The insight b.lay provided allowed us to keep cost efficient, but also creates the business case for ensuring to be in control in the future. During the inventory process b.lay used their solution Zyncc, a single, secure platform where our organization could provide relevant information in a fast and accurate manner. The data returned was reconciled by b.lay according to the rules and restrictions of the agreements. It allowed us to exchange this reporting with Oracle with confidence. Zyncc helped to realize the information delivery within the very tight deadlines we have given b.lay.

Conducting these audits requires sound understanding of common mistakes and where to look for them. This can be especially challenging in a continually changing environment with new products and versions of products being deployed.
