RaySuite, an important part of the Raynet product family, includes the RayVentory solution, which can be used to automatically create an inventory that stores all installed software, computer devices, VMware host systems, and Hyper-V and Oracle databases. RayVentory uses agents and agentless technology as well as remote inventory to realize these automatic inventories and does so across a company's entire IT infrastructure in order to gather and report the necessary data to RayVentory.
The two partners are able to create a license balance sheet, which provides much greater transparency for the companies that buy software and licenses and allows companies to prove which software is in use if audited by the software manufacturers, by comparing software licenses that have been purchased with the software that is actually installed.
Unlike the traditional project-related SAM approach, the use of an automated process allows for comprehensive compliance status information to be generated. This allows companies to significantly reduce the risk of facing enormous out-of-compliance penalties and even potential fines when audited without having to purchase additional hardware or software.
Costs can be reduced and are easier to calculate when planning for the future and companies can do a better job of planning rollouts. It also gives companies an affordable and reliable way of making sure that they comply with legal regulations. Companies gain the transparency that their controllers and tax advisors love to see.
"The days of expensive and complicated license management solutions are pretty much over," says
