Cloud Licensing

Managing software licenses and subscriptions in the cloud and in on-premises / cloud hybrid models can be very difficult for most organizations. While Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) type deployments cause the most issues, Software as a Service (SaaS) can be just as risky.

Miro will help you determine:

  • What Assets Work Well in the Cloud
  • What Assets Work Better On Premise
  • Risks and Challenges in Cloud Transitions
  • Avoiding and Navigating Software License Audits in a Hybrid Environment

Each major software company, including Oracle, Microsoft, Salesforce and IBM, manage their cloud licensing models differently and have different rules.  For some your needs depend on the number of named users, while in other situations it’s the number processors or servers that matter most.

A common mistake made by IT managers is trying to move on-premise licenses to the cloud.  Many contracts have exclusive language forbidding this while others don’t write it in but believe it’s just assumed, and they will interpret it that way when determining compliance.  Customers usually have no right to move their licenses to the cloud.  Contact us to find out more about how Miro can help ensure a fully compliant cloud services model for your organization
