- Difficulty getting a complete purchase history and understanding current entitlements
- Knowing the correct editions to purchase
- Understanding the differences between license consumption, usage, deployment, and entitlement
- Avoid time-consuming, resource-monopolizing and costly audits.

- Reduce renewal costs by renewing only what you actually consume.
- Become proactive vs. reactive in your contract negotiations.
- Increase your leverage in contract negotiations with knowledge of what you actually need and use.
- Reduce and manage compliance and regulatory risk.
