The Challenge

Cloud migrations often result in non-compliance of existing IT vendor agreements, as well as excess spend on licenses, driving the need for optimization before and after adopting new applications.

The Reality

Suppliers will tout Bring Your Own Licensing (BYOL) as a benefit of the cloud, but maintaining contract compliance and ongoing software optimization still falls on you. Common cloud migration challenges include:

  • Contracts – not authored with cloud in mind; most require modernization
  • Licensing – rules and counting metrics are subject to change in the cloud<&li>
  • Proliferation – software installs can rapidly grow beyond entitlements without cloud governance
  • Tracking – SAM tools aren’t setup to track public cloud vendor deployments
  • Compliance – customer remains accountable for its licensing position; cloud audits are coming

The Impact

Being under-prepared for your cloud migration puts you at risk for violating licensing rights, grants, and current entitlements—resulting in massive vendor fees. Additionally, insufficient processes and a lack of publisher-specific expertise for optimizing cloud-based deployments can result in continuous overspending.
