Software License Optimization

Audit support is part of our Service RayOptimize.

RayOptimize is a set of consulting services delivered by Raynet’s team of experts to enable and maintain accurate software inventory in the enterprise. Its analysis by our experts is based both on raw data provided by discovery and inventory tools, as well as commercial application information delivered from software analysis. The result of this exercise is a comprehensive report across your enterprise about all installed software applications, their quantities and important license properties.

Having an accurate software and license inventory is an issue regularly faced by IT administrators and IT buyers. A successful inventory is also made more difficult nowadays by geographically distributed locations and the number and diversity of clients and servers in any organization.

RayVentory will deliver raw data needed for detailed software analysis. This initial scan can also be performed by other tools such as Microsoft SCCM or Matrix 42 Emiprum.

Afterwards, your raw data is identified by COMPAREX Profiler DNA, a unique tool for identifying software from your inventory data. It calculates which software products have been found at different levels of your IT environment, providing a solid database for various processes based on your software inventory.

RayOptimize provides a comprehensive analysis of your hardware and software landscape based on professional IT solutions used since decades on large scale projects. A large number of attributes are reported on, such as: product, versioning, quantities, license categories etc.

You can order RayOptimize either separately or as a set with other consulting services.
