FisherITS will therefore deliver two main Digital Marketplace Services which are listed under the ‘Cloud Hosting, Software and Support’ category:
  • IBM License Metric Tool (ILMT) as a Service
  • License Compliance as a Service (LiCaas)
Since the March 2012 launch of the G-Cloud Framework, this service has mushroomed into providing around £2.8bn of Cloud Services which are supplied by over 3,500 G-Cloud suppliers. The G-Cloud framework enables SME and Large suppliers to deliver Cloud-based Hosting, software and services to the Public Sector.
Since applying for the G-Cloud 10 status, FisherITS has rebranded the above two services to be now be known as:
  • ITAM365 for IBM ILMT
  • ITAM365
ITAM365 for IBM ILMT Cloud
ITAM365 IBM ILMT Cloud 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, up to the creation of the quarterly audit PVU sub-capacity reports. FisherITS then provide ongoing, proactive optimization of ILMT and the included IBM software bundling. The aim is to highlight where cost savings can be made by assessing entitlement vs deployment. We hope then to make the organization audit-ready by making sure the organization has regular reporting on the IBM Licensing framework. This service also provides further benefits to the organization, because the customer uses FisherITS ILMT Cloud Infrastructure, therefore, reducing the cost of ownership of hardware, software and support overnight. This service usually provides an ROI within a few months from initiation.
ITAM365 Services
FisherITS License Compliance as a Service (LiCaas) has now been rebranded as ITAM365. 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.
ITAM365 is a reporting service that delivers audit-ready Effective License Position reports, together with risk mitigation and cost optimization advice on an agreed schedule (from monthly to annually). In contracting this service, the organization can save money through:
  • Reducing or removing the need to recruit, develop or retain specialist licensing expertise inhouse.
  • Gain access to audit-ready compliance and optimization reports as well as detailed and tailored advice
  • 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.
FisherITS look forward to working with organizations who wish to procure through the G-Cloud Framework and who wish to engage a supplier who really are passionate about helping Organizations receive real value by using our Software Asset and Compliance Management Services.
