Lowering IBM Costs

Lower Your IBM Costs

Our expert analyst team will conduct a comprehensive license review of the organization’s IBM software deployments, entitlements, usage, contracts and purchasing documents to help the organization reduce it’s IBM costs while still maintaining compliance with IBM licensing policies

The core purpose of Miro Consulting’s services has always been to lower costs associated with software licensing. Software licensing and its associated subscription and support (S&S) 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 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 IBM 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 evolves.

Cost savings can be realized in many forms, from reducing the amount of S&S paid yearly to reducing the amount of licensing that needs to be purchased to attain software license compliance and many variations and combinations of both.
The following is a list of common areas where reductions of cost are often identified, but does not represent a complete list:

  • Shelfware Optimization or Elimination
  • Migration to or from the Cloud
  • Annual S&S Renewals
  • 3rd Party Support
  • Changing licensing metrics
  • Negotiating a New Purchase
  • Changes in Computing Platforms
  • Deployment Optimization
  • Contract Changes
  • License Migrations
