Avio, a global leader in the aerospace industry with 5000 employees, develops and delivers subsystems and components to major international aeronautical, military, civil and space programs. See how their trial of Open iT software yielded a high return on investment, with a 47% cost reduction on the annual IT costs for one of their most expensive engineering applications.
As the company grew, the existing commercial solution for measuring software usage was insufficient for cost and feature constraints—they needed flexible software management tools with powerful analysis capabilities. Avio required factual data about license use, and had begun to look for a solution that would support multiple license managers such as FlexNet and LUM.
Having evaluated various asset management tracking solutions, Avio enrolled Polimatica, an IT consultancy firm, to team up with Open iT to acquire its platform. LicenseAnalyzer 2022 Level 1, LicenseAnalyzer2020 Level 3 and ComputeAnalyzer modules were installed on a number of selected computer and workstations. These modules then used a single, centralized database on one dedicated server to store the data being logged from the software license managers.
