IBM Licensing Newsletter August 2022

ibm licensing newsletter august 2022

What I’ve been doing👨‍💻

It still surprises me when I see organisations paying IBM S&S for products they no longer have deployed or in some cases never used.   This is such a waste of money and easy to uncover.  Take the list of PVU/RVU products from passport advantage and compare to ILMT.  If it’s not showing in ILMT you have a potential saving to investigate.  Do this once a year, a few months before your S&S renewal and you have more to spend on products you actually use.
