Optimize License Usage

Improve software ROI by automating license optimization

There are over 30 Billion USD spent on unused software per year. Optimizing licenses can be difficult if companies do not automate license optimization.
Open iT tracks idle (or inactive) license usage, and can automatically release such idle licenses to reduce cost and maximize the value on concurrent licenses.
With Open iT, discover applications that are not being actively used, based on their unique CPU, I/O, mouse or keyboard activity levels. Policies and priorities can also be set up, and automatically release licenses back to the license server to avoid unproductive use of software licenses.
