Microsoft Cost Savings
The core purpose of Miro Consulting’s services has always been to lower costs associated with software licensing. Software licensing costs and their associated maintenance costs can be a significant portion of an organization’s IT costs.
However, a large part of lowering costs is the simultaneous effort of ensuring software license compliance. It is not particularly difficult to deploy more software than you are licensed to use, but that leaves a looming financial risk that no one should ignore.
During any Microsoft project our analysts are constantly looking for ways to streamline an organization’s method of acquiring licenses as well as efficiently deploying them. Every year we identify new strategies as vendor licensing rules, products and methods of deploying technology constantly evolve.
Cost savings can be realized in many forms, from reducing the amount of support paid yearly to reducing the amount of licensing that needs to be purchased to attain software license compliance and many variations and combinations of them both.
The following is a list of common areas where reductions of cost are often identified, but does not represent a complete list.
Examples of Microsoft Cost Savings:
- Shelf ware Optimization or Elimination
- Migration to or from the Cloud
- Changing licensing metrics
- Negotiating a New Purchase
- Deployment Optimization
- Contract Specifics
- License Migrations including Step-Ups
