  • Free up internal capacity to be reused and therefore realize business values from our advice, rather than on the complexity of creating ELPs.
  • Access in-depth vendor licensing expertise at highly competitive costs, thanks to our efficiency and economies of scale.
  • Organizations usually achieve 13% cost savings, 30% reduction in risk avoidance; and 57% optimization of software spend through our advisory services.

ITAM365 can either be contracted by including all of the organization software vendors, a sub-set or ITAM365 can be delivered to support organization individual software vendors. The service supports software vendors such as Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, SAP and Salesforce and many more.

ILMT365

ILMT365 has been designed to provide organizations with complete management of their IBM license metric tool (ILMT), ranging from the maintenance of the server and the agent as well as bundling relationship, up to the creation of the quarterly PVU Sub-capacity compliance reports.

ILMT365 enables organizations to be audit-ready by making sure software use tracking meets IBM’s compliance requirements. For ILMT365 Cloud Service customers, they also receive further benefits from saving operational and management costs by outsourcing the hosting and management of their ILMT server to FisherITS.
