Our tool can take a variety of different deployment data throughout your software environment, including data pulled from your own SAM tool and your Active Directory. Once the data is uploaded, our algorithm provides you with an analysis on your SQL Servers.
It really is that easy.
SQL Server Licensing may be one of the most confusing license models that Microsoft has today. Even the biggest SAM tools on the market have a hard time truly optimizing SQL Server licensing. Usually what other tools will do is they will produce a simplified version of the data that doesn’t provide the in-depth analysis customers need to take meaningful action to organize their SQL Servers. Our algorithm will provide a comprehensive view of your SQL Server Licenses, taking months of work and cutting it down to a few minutes. This is done to ensure your SQL Licensing is completed in the most cost-effective way possible, regardless of if you are on-premise, in the cloud, have Software Assurance, purchasing through an EA or a Server and Cloud Enrolment (SCE).

*Many people assume that the database is the only element of a SQL server that needs to be licensed. However, there are at least seven Services that can installed on the SQL Server, such as Server Database Engine (DB), SQL Server R Services for Windows, Master Data Services (MDS), Analysis Services (AS), Integration Services (IS), Reporting Services (RS) and DataQuality Services (DQS), all of which are licensable. If you have multiple services installed than you will need to have just one license to accommodate for the most recent service. Many companies will spread out these services over a variety of SQL servers in order to improve performance, not knowing that any server hosting a Service needs to be licensed for that Service.
