Application Usage Overview
Enterprises are rushing to take advantage of cloud and virtual infrastructures shifting the focus from the desktop to the datacenter. However, understanding the implications on application compatibility, deployment and licensing are less understood and must be integral to any plans.
The challenges: managing application usage in the datacenter
- How do you migrate from on-premises to the cloud or from a physical to a virtual infrastructure in your own datacenter?
- How do you optimize and manage application deployments in a virtual environment?
- How do you manage cost and ensure software license compliance in a virtual environment?
- How do you manage and optimize the use and spend of the growing adoption of cloud infrastructure services?
The solution: manage applications across the lifecycle
Flexera Software solutions help companies manage application usage – from deployment to compliance management and spend optimization – throughout the software lifecycle. They simultaneously support physical, virtual and cloud-based deployments and enable enterprises to:
- Make informed decisions—automate compatibility assessment to determine which applications can be deployed as virtual applications, and to virtual or cloud-based locations and which desktops are good candidates for virtualization
- Reliably deploy—ensure applications are packaged and ready for cloud or virtual deployments in conformance with corporate standards that ensure cost effective support
- Empower people—deliver IT as a service with an enterprise app store that empowers users to request their own applications that have been pre-packaged in the right format and can be seamlessly delivered to their device of choice
- Manage risk—align technology adoption with governance requirements to ensure continuous compliance for all cloud and virtual applications
- Optimize spend—understand true cost and dynamically plan procurement from client to cloud. Ensure you know what software licenses can move from your enterprise to the cloud or be migrated from one cloud to another. Leverage an accurate understanding of usage patterns, license mobility rights and requirements to build your cloud plan.
Whether you are just beginning your journey or you are well on your way – Flexera Software's cloud and virtual infrastructure solutions connect customers to the cloud by dynamically assessing, converting and publishing applications to the cloud and by providing foresight, planning and license compliance management for virtual and cloud applications.
