Eracent helps its customers meet the challenges of managing software licenses and computing assets in today’s complex and evolving IT environments. Our enterprise clients save significantly on their annual software spend, reduce their audit and security risks, and establish more efficient asset management processes. Eracent’s client base includes some of the world’s largest corporate and government networks and IT environments.
Quality data is the foundation of any effective SAM or ITAM program. Eracent’s cross-platform discovery, application recognition, and software utilization analytics provide detailed insight. Flexible integration enables data from other sources to be shared and normalized for a complete ownership and operational view.
Our clients reduce the risk and resource strain of publisher audits since they are able to quickly establish effective license position reports. They can also optimize their license usage by ensuring that they are leveraging the most cost effective configurations. SAM processes – from requisitions to provisioning and reclamation – are automated.
Eracent’s SOAR™ process summarizes this data, enabling our clients to set, track and achieve their SAM program goals and realize tangible business value.
The product suite that supports these processes is Eracent’s IT Management Center™ (ITMC™), which includes:
- Cross-platform inventory and discovery for physical and virtual environments,
- Software and server utilization measurement,
- Complete asset lifecycle management,
- Software license management and reconciliation,
- Employee self-service functionality with automated request and approval processes,
- Flexible process automation through workflow enabled solutions.
Eracent’s capabilities also extend beyond ITAM and SAM, providing data and processes to support software baselining (as outlined in the proposed ISO 19770-22 standard and by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Cyber Security Center of Excellence). Eracent has developed and supports a unique process to manage and control software in highly secure networks. The process is designed to assure that software is protected from cyber-attacks and hacking.
