SAVING £80K - CONSOLIDATING LICENCES

London Borough of Hackney

    SAVING £80K - CONSOLIDATING LICENCES

Being compliant, though reducing risk

The London Borough of Hackney was keen to reduce the risk of over-spend on Oracle software licensing, but with essential public services underpinned by Oracle solutions, it's also vital to have a compliant software estate. Traditionally the Council transacted directly with the vendor, but it didn't have the in-house skills and resources to ensure that its licence agreements matched its need.


Computacenter provided us with the licensing knowledge and intelligence we needed to enable cost savings of around £80k.

OBJECTIVES

  • Cost reduction
  • Access to skilled resources

Analysing requirements for optimisation

As the Council has an ongoing relationship with us for hardware supply via the CITHS (Commodity IT Hardware & Software) framework, it decided to turn to us for help. Over three months, we completed a thorough analysis of the Council's Oracle requirements and existing licences. We then advised on the licences that were no longer necessary, and those that could be consolidated.
