BDNA, the IT Genome Company, has partnered with Mattelli, a provider of agreement, contract portfolio and licence management offerings, to offer a full licence audit and review service to its customers in the UK.
BDNA is the leading provider of IT infrastructure content, inventory and analysis offerings, and its offerings create a comprehensive technology fact base that support a wide variety of IT initiatives.
Mattelli’s software platform provides added value to procurement systems and departments by delivering end-to-end contract management and compliance assistance.
The new partnership extends the potential uses of BDNA’s foundational fact base and the partnership presents a key strategic benefit for anyone using Oracle and Microsoft products.
BDNA UK Country Manager Paul Winters said the company’s toolsets, such as BDNA Discover and BDNA Normalize, can really help to provide organisations with discovery information, and the ability to get the most from their IT Management software investment by normalising and enriching the data they receive.
"Mattelli has a niche understanding in the asset and licence management space, and its solid history, skills and knowledge is invaluable to our clients," Winters said.
"With its track record in this sector, we believe that the new partnership strongly complements our offering. It ensures that we can provide our clients with a complete licence audit and review service."
Mattelli managing partner Gary Woodcock said they chose to partner with BDNA because it has the best toolset to discover Oracle and Microsoft products installed on a clients network.
"And when you combine it with the Mattelli Unity toolset, which has the best compliance engine and asset management functions on the market, it gives organisations the ability to manage changes to the asset register online, enable processes to manage software deployment, and also the lifecycle of the software assets," Woodcock said.
"Not only does the partnership offer a clear licence audit strategy but it also allows our clients to understand and enable key IT governance policies such as ISO and ITIL, which can represent significant savings as a result of licence pooling, licence reuse, application and project de-commissions."
