How can licensing costs be reduced?

By using on-premise licenses or hybrid licensing

all the necessary functions can be maintained and costs can be reduced by tens of percent.

Cost Optimization Example – Microsoft 365 E3 Replacement

For a better idea of our solutions, we’ll demonstrate optimization on a common example for a 300-user organization that uses Microsoft 365 E3 enterprise licenses. A complete list of Microsoft 365 E3 features can be found at manufacturer .

The organization demands optimization/purchase of infrastructure in 2021 (support for most applications in the 2016 versions ends at 10/2025, check https://docs.microsoft.com/cs-cz/lifecycle/products/ ). The company has an existing SQL Server license. For a better idea, we have converted the prices per user / month / until the end of the period of support for perpetual licenses.

How to begin?

To select a suitable plan or to design a licensing solution

based on the real needs of your organization, it is advisable to start with a software audit.

Software audit

A software audit is an independent assessment of the status of licenses and software used in an organization. It serves as a basis for cost optimization. With a software audit, you can also avoid heavy fines due to under-licensing or use of illegal software, and an excessive number of licenses can be detected during a software audit.

Software auditing process

Collection of data on used software
Sběr dat o používaném softwaru
Get proof of acquisition of software licenses
