“Managing vendor product licenses during large scale migration to cloud” – A Blog
Infosys expert Kiran Kumar Ballari writes about how to go about planning and managing vendor product licenses during large scale migrations to cloud. He says that enterprises should conduct due-diligence of major software vendors, carry out inventory management of licenses and the commercials.
He concludes, “Understanding the current licensing agreement models, optimizing application architectures to cloud, and negotiating a position with vendors that will be suitable for the cloud along with compliance processes in the target state model should hold the organization in good stead. With the cloud native services and open source innovation continuing to grow rapidly, enterprises can mitigate traditional licensing constraints by leveraging these technology innovations.”
