It’s hard to think of an industry that is not undergoing transformation. Systems space industries including domains like: Banking, Automotive, Aerospace, Defense, and Manufacturing, are all being transformed by the forces of a smarter planet.
By smarter planet we mean the world is becoming:
- Instrumented – Sensors are everywhere, collecting information that can be used in all types of decision making and optimization.
- Interconnected – Everyone and everything are connected. People, products and systems are being connected in new and different ways.
- Intelligent – With all this instrumentation and inter connectivity is the opportunity for intelligence to be infused in all products and systems.
Any project that is taken up by your organization needs the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to see success. Each of these tools requires them to be licensed so that there is an authentic and a transparent way to deliver the project seamlessly. The choice of tools and the licenses involved come at a cost to the organization.
Your organization should be well versed in understanding the costs, and should be looking at a more optimized and flexible way of working around the projects with such tools and the licenses with optimized costs. Licensing can play a large role in the flexibility and affordability of an IT infrastructure. Acquiring, managing, and utilizing software licenses effectively can be costly and time consuming.
A flexible licensing strategy can help your investment in to get can optimal use of rational solutions based on your development life cycle.
Most organizations will use an effective mix of multiple schemes to drive the optimal productivity of their software delivery teams. By using the Rational token licensing model, practitioners can utilize the right Rational tool at the right time during the development life cycle. Rational Tokens allow great flexibility in configuration: allow for current product use as well as factoring additional tools that might be needed later in the life cycle.
Rational Token Licensing helps you become flexible and optimized:
- Flexible use of Rational solutions caters to On Demand Licensing:
Use the right tool at the right time during the life cycle of a development project, Identify the best license fit for a given task or project.
- Streamline License Management and Reduce Shelfware:
Multiple licensing options to your development teams help eliminate the concept of temporarily “unused” software as the project moves from one development phase to the next.
- Optimize and Simplify software license investments for higher ROI:
Replaces a less predictable spending model that has large spikes with a uniform spending model with incremental increases as needed, allows customers the access to specialty software during the project, at optimized costs and provides need based usage.
