Thornstein Groep has in-depth knowledge of licensing metrics and sales models from all major vendors, like: SAP, Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, HP, CA and BMC. Also the vendors who offer customized solutions based on products from these software vendors have no secrets Thornstein Groep. We therefore are able to add value, by significantly reducing costs, when negotiating with those vendors.
Software licensing is a complex subject and the rules are continuously changed by the vendors. The purchase and maintenance of software licenses involves substantial amounts of money. But what do you actually get when you purchase software licenses? You only buy a 'paper' license which can be based on anything and can be restricted in many ways.
The complexity makes it difficult to determine how many licenses for what metric you will eventually need, what the actual usage will be and whether the pricing is right for your organization. Thornstein Groep is able to help you to determine whether a particular purchase is required and if the price is competitive to the current market.
By combining knowledge of negotiation, current market knowledge and understanding of the various license metrics, Thornstein Groep makes significant savings for its clients.
