As IT Asset Managers and IT Procurement Managers know, IBM licensing is complex. They use IBM Processor Value Unit (PVU) in full capacity and sub-capacity (i.e. virtual) environments, User Value Unit (UVU) and Resource Value Unit (RVU) models, for example. They offer trade-in credit programs with “Value Buckets” that require tracking the “burn down” of titles and points. And they provide proprietary tools, such as ILMT, TADd and SUA to track IBM license consumption. As IT Asset and Procurement Managers, you need tools that not only do a better job of managing and optimizing IBM software licenses, but also help you manage the rest of your software estate.
