Products

App Portal Enterprise App Store

App Portal enforces continual software license compliance and controls software deployment, while increasing employee satisfaction and the efficiency of application service delivery. The enterprise app store ensures that governance is in place to check software license availability, obtain proper approvals on software requests, and reclaim unused licenses.

IT as a service is about running the IT organization as an internal service provider, partnering more closely with lines of business. Establishing an enterprise app store is a key component supporting this initiative, and Flexera Software App Portal makes it easy to do so.

AdminStudio Suite

AdminStudio Suite powers an enterprise’s daily Application Readiness process for inventory, rationalization, packaging, planning, and compatibility testing of physical, virtual, and mobile applications, ensuring faster service delivery and predictable deployment.

In a typical enterprise, as many as 30% of all applications experience change (new upgrades, updates, etc.) each year. For IT to meet the needs of the business, there needs to be an ongoing process to prepare and deploy these application updates. AdminStudio Suite automates and manages the Application Readiness process needed to allow IT to deliver applications quickly and reliably to line of business users.

FlexNet Manager Suite for Enterprises

Whether you're an enterprise, government body or educational institution, you know how strategic software applications have become. They no longer just help the business, they run the business. Yet, surprisingly, software licenses and application usage are managed tactically at best by most organizations. Lacking a strategic solution for Software License Optimization, most organizations are significantly overspending on some licenses and out of compliance on others, putting them at risk of costly software audits.

Ensuring continuous software license compliance requires an ongoing program supported by the right information. FlexNet Manager Suite delivers the needed information through an accurate inventory of your applications reconciled against actual usage and your product use rights. The result is a centralized system for proactively managing license compliance across the software estate from desktop to the datacenter.

As users request applications in App Portal, software license availability is first checked in FlexNet Manager Suite. After installation of the application, usage is tracked by FlexNet Manager Suite and unused application licenses are identified for possible reclamation.
