Aspera and iQuate have today announced a partnership focused on helping organizations optimize their existing IT Asset investment. This will see the integration of their best of breed products to deliver an industry leading automated software asset discovery and license management solution for customers with complex, cross-platform IT networks.
Both iQuate and Aspera specialise in helping large, complex organisations overcome the practical difficulties they face in managing their software license estate so they can optimize their software assets, prevent non-compliance and significantly reduce the risk of over expenditure.
iQSonar from iQuate is the leading automated IT asset discovery tool capable of rapidly delivering accurate data on server-based software usage and deployment. SmartTrack from Aspera is the leading license management solution currently used to administer software licenses for over 3 million devices globally.
“Both Aspera and iQuate have been delivering software license clarity to large, complex organisations for some time focussing on the notoriously difficult server-based software environments”, commented Pat Durkin, CEO iQuate. “We have already worked together at the request of a shared multi-national customer, who immediately understood how both products complement each other. This announcement moves that relationship to a new level, as it enables Aspera’s SmartTrack to be automatically populated with complex inventory data for all our customers.”
“Customers with large and complex IT estates have real, practical difficulties in controlling and managing their software licenses. SmartTrack and our continuous business process improvement services deliver that control to customers”, explains Bernhard Böhler, Managing Partner, Aspera. “SmartTrack needs complete and accurate data to deliver the information our customers need and iQSonar with its focus on accuracy and comprehensiveness across even the most complex environments ensures that SmartTrack delivers the best information to our customers.”
