They also know that most managers are relatively risk-averse when it comes to legal terminology. At Origina, we know IBM’s licensing rules inside out and can help you to discuss your entitlements and how you can reclaim control of your IBM software estate.

E4: Don't Be That Guy


This episode will be dissecting our last campaign 'Don't Be That Guy' and exploring the ideas and the interpretation behind it.
Customers who use BigFix Inventory for tracking use of IBM in Cloud/virtualized environments are ok to use sub-capacity measurement. When BigFix moves to HCL it will no longer be an IBM product so will customers be able to continue to use BigFix inventory to track use or will they have to start to use ILMT standalone?
IBM selling off their legacy software products to HCL Technologies is recognized as the largest Indian IT acquisition to date. But how will this move affect IBM’s legacy clients? No notice was given of the deal, yet all these clients have a new vendor and no clarity of what’s going to happen with the development and support of these software assets. ‍
Is your company blindly spending potential budget dollars on complex IBM renewals? Many companies experience high spending on underused software. This overspending is due to lack of knowledge and an understanding of options. Common confusion across all staff and platforms is due to forced upgrades. This panic of confusion leads to late renewals at the end of the year, leading to careless overspending. Overcome this overspending by understanding your license entitlements and explore your options ahead of schedule.
