Reduce Software License Expenses

White Paper Published By: IBM

"Cost reduction strategies are top of mind, along with innovation through collaboration, for C level executives in businesses and governments. Negotiating a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement and understanding the alternatives customers have available to them is one of the most frequent consulting requests we receive. Project Liberate, a no-charge service offering from IBM, specializes in this - identifying opportunities for reducing the expenditure on Microsoft licensing by showing customers alternative ways to purchase the same products from Microsoft and free up budgets for other capital investments. This whitepaper captures the lessons learned from various Project Liberate engagements worldwide and presents best practices from these case studies as well as advice on negotiating strategies."
