Infraware is an enterprise IT services business that provides its clients with accurate, real time and predictive visibility on their asset portfolio. We work with many global fortune 500 organisations to connect, control and optimise their assets.
" We chose Infraware to optimise our Cloud software usage reporting processes - based on their knowledge and expertise in process design and Microsoft Service Provider Licensing (SPLA). Infraware delivered a large scale programme to verify, enhance and automate our reporting processes. The project was completed within a very tight deadline and provided a new level of consistency and efficiency across our hosted environments. "
" Infraware provided the UK based NATO Headquarters with SAM expertise which assisted us in establishing our licensing position and thus enabled a major expansion to occur with significant cost reductions whilst also making our entire estate compliant. "
" Infraware helped the business on a number of levels. Their knowledge of desktop and server estate licensing enabled us to fully optimise our previous expenditure in this area. Thank you Infraware. "
“ We saved £750,000 in 6 months rendering the SAM managed services contract cost-neutral. “
“ When Infraware delivered the utilisation reports, it allowed us to recover unused assets and provide those at zero cost to other users on demand. ”
“ Infraware helped us stay compliant and increase cost-efficiencies, whilst enabling better productivity for end users. ”
“ Infraware consistently demonstrated a deep understanding across a broad portfolio of applications and systems to allow us to focus on running the business. ”
“ In the first 12 months we reduced our unused software expenditure by over 45%. ”
Infraware operates across the globe helping clients manage and optimise assets. With a long history in IT Asset Management, our early days were spent pioneering and shaping todays well known standards and training courses:
1998 Federation Against Software Theft (FAST) Certification programme
2000 FAST Audit Training Day
2003 ISO 19770-1
2006 – 2009 British Computing Society SAM Board Member *ITIL SAM Foundation & Practitioner Course Syllabus
2006 – 2009 SAM ITIL Training Foundation & Practitioner Courses
2009 ITIL SAM V.3
Our experience and deep understanding of SAM standards have earned us the privilege of working on some of the largest SAM and ITAM process projects over the past 20 years. This activity coupled with our global audit practice for Microsoft, Oracle, IBM and SAP have ensured that Infraware remains at the forefront of the software and asset management industry.
As we move into an ever growing digitised world, Infraware now applies its IT Asset Management skills and knowledge to bring rapid business benefits in the Enterprise Asset Management industry.
We have some of the most experienced staff in Europe. As one of the leading global software & asset management service providers, we were involved in authoring and reviewing of SAM ITIL V3 (2009), Federation Against Software Theft (FAST 1999) and ISO 19770-1 (2003 & 2009). We are now actively helping our clients adopt ISO 55000 principles.
We always look for the 'best fit' solution and we advise our clients when the deal is not right for them.
Our background and experience has enabled us to enter other asset management markets with relative ease since the onset of Internet of Things (IoT).
With great accuracy and at a fraction of the cost of traditional asset management projects, we have enabled our clients to better understand the cost of their assets and the real value of the data that can be collected from such assets.
Infraware started its life in the IT Sector helping organisations understand exactly what software and hardware was in use throughout their environments. This very often involved logging and tracking thousands of assets across multiple networks and countries around the world.
A notable project, and probably our most challenging, was with NATO. It entailed tracking a number of assets in almost 30 countries that were constantly moving around. Our background in IT and these kind of projects have led us into the more traditional world of Asset Management where we bring in the concept of the Internet of Things.
By connecting traditional assets up to the internet, not only are we able to bring unprecedented levels of control and protection but we can shine a light on what was either nonexistent or ‘dark data’ to our clients.
Infraware actively supports the asset management industry by contributing to the ongoing development of SAM, FAST, ITIL and ISO standards.
