Solutions for IT Software Management

IT departments are under tremendous pressure to do more with less. While budgets are being squeezed, end-user demand for software continues to grow. IT departments are forced to find ways to reduce not only software licensing and management costs, but also IT administration and operational expenses – all while ensuring end users can still access the reliable applications they need, when they need them.

Strategies IT uses to achieve these IT management goals are referred to as Software Value Management (SVM). Macrovision is the world leader in SVM – our integrated FLEXnet solutions enable software publishers and their enterprise customers to maximize the value of their software.

Packaging & Preparing Software

Deploying applications, updates, and patches is one of the most common functions of every enterprise IT department. But if you don’t properly prepare these software packages for deployment, you risk bad packages crashing critical applications, driving up IT support costs, and angering end users.

Macrovision’s FLEXnet AdminStudio solutions provide enterprise IT with the automated tools needed to package and prepare reliable software for error-free deployment. They are part of the FLEXnet family of Software Value Management solutions, an integrated suite of applications that help software publishers and their enterprise customers maximize the value of their software

FLEXnet AdminStudio Workflow Manager is an end-to-end Web-based application management system that gives enterprises total control over the software packaging process. It connects IT Management, software packagers, and application owners together to standardize and streamline packaging across the organization.

Enterprise IT departments are constantly preparing applications, updates, and patches for deployment. But the deployment preparation process – known as software packaging – is complex and difficult to coordinate. If managed poorly, expensive problems occur, including overloaded packagers, stalled repackaging projects, and unreliable package deployments that crash desktops.

Deploying Software

Software deployment solutions like Microsoft’s SMS and Novell’s ZENworks can reduce an enterprise’s TCO while increasing IT’s productivity – but only if the software being deployed is properly configured.

To simplify the rollout of third-party and internally built applications, many enterprises rely on software deployment solutions like SMS, ZENworks®, LANDesk®, and Tivoli®. But if the software applications being deployed aren't properly configured for distribution, they can install incorrectly, disrupt other important applications, and cost enterprises dearly in lost productivity and help desk expenses.

Macrovision's FLEXnet AdminStudio and SolutionArchitect provide IT teams and enterprise application developers with the automated tools needed to package and configure third-party and internally built software applications for problem-free deployment. They are part of the FLEXnet family of Software Value Management solutions, an integrated suite of applications that help software publishers and their enterprise customers maximize the value of their software.

Optimizing Software License Utilization

Centrally managing your organization's license usage enables you to reduce software spending, optimize license renewals, simplify license administration, and ensure end users have access to the licenses they need.

According to a recent study by IDC, 67% of companies do not track software usage. Without accurate software usage data, organizations routinely overspend and buy licenses they don’t use, or underspend and deny end users access to the software they need. They also waste money renewing licenses that never get used.

Macrovision’s FLEXnet Manager enables organizations to centrally track and manage their licenses, so they can provide end users with the licenses they need without wasting money on unnecessary software. FLEXnet Manager is part of the FLEXnet family of Software Value Management solutions, an integrated suite of applications that help software publishers and their enterprise customers maximize the value of their software.

Maintaining Software

Many enterprises rely on internally built applications to conduct business. But these homegrown programs often require frequent updates and patches, making them difficult for IT to update – unless you have the right update delivery solution.

To stay productive, many enterprises rely on applications built by their own software developers. However, these homegrown programs are often the most difficult for IT to manage, especially those that require frequent updating and patching.

Macrovision's FLEXnet Connect and FLEXnet AdminStudio make it easy for IT to maintain the reliability and performance of their homegrown applications. With Macrovision's update and patch management solutions, IT has an easy way to receive, test, and electronically distribute the updates and patches created by their application developers.
