Aachen, Germany, June 23, 2016 – Aspera, a pioneer of strategic SAM solutions and a worldwide leading service provider, has released SmartTrack Optimization & Simulation 4.1.1, a highly cost-effective and functional way to optimize data center topologies. The new release gives SAM managers full control over planning and analyzing their IT landscape, enabling their company to maximize the value of its current software investment and plan for the most efficient future spend.
At the heart of the simulation is the new topology designer, through which the licences and contracts of all device types can be planned, optimized and compared on all platforms and for every infrastructure. Unlimited “what if?” licence scenarios are created real-time in a sandbox, and managed without any impact on the production environment through a unique, intuitive interface. For instance, product consolidations and the effects of rollouts can be calculated in a few seconds.
“SAM teams are now able to provide all stakeholders in ITIL processes with effective services and reports,” said Mathias Knops, Senior Product Manager at Aspera. “This is how our clients assess wide-ranging infrastructure and architecture issues before technical decisions and investments are made.”
“The new version offers clients an easy access to mature simulation, whether they have an existing SAM solution or not,” added Olaf Diehl, Managing Director at Aspera. “We have always supported our customers in ensuring high data quality as the basis of every optimization, and customers today are already making seven-figure savings using the optimization functions. We’re taking yet another step forward with this simulation, thereby achieving the highest level in software asset management.”
The Optimization & Simulation solution is a powerful companion to Aspera’s flagship SmartTrack platform for license management. Both technologies are equally suitable for corporations, large organizations and medium-size companies due to their excellent scalability.
