Nilit Implemented SoftWatch's Applications Usage Analytics to Optimize Its Microsoft License Spending

SoftWatch Usage Analyses Enable Nilit to Limit Purchasing of New Licenses and Re-Assign Microsoft Licenses According to Actual Needs of Employees

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL--(Marketwired - Apr 18, 2016) - SoftWatch, a leader in Application Usage Analytics, announced today that Nilit, a global provider of customized nylon solutions, has implemented SoftWatch's OptimizeIT Premium cloud service to analyze its current usage of Microsoft applications and reduce its Microsoft license spending.

Nilit's purpose in implementing Softwatch was to analyze the real applications usage by all the company employees and understand the actual employees' needs before renegotiating a new enterprise agreement with Microsoft. In order to obtain this, OptimizeIT Premium was distributed to all Nilit's offices in North America, Brazil, France, Italy, Germany and China. Following a 6 month period of collecting usage information, detailed analyses of actual usage and users' segmentation were generated.

The analyses enabled Nilit to build the right licensing model towards the renewal of the new enterprise agreement with Microsoft. In addition, Nilit was able to use their current licenses smartly by re-assigning licenses to current employees and matching the right license to each employee. Also, a pool of free unused licenses was created to support the needs of new employees and limit further purchasing of licenses.

"We find SoftWatch to be a remarkable eye opening service that revealed to us the real use of our software assets by our employees," said Idan Barak, CIO of Nilit. "SoftWatch's analysis puts us in a much better position when negotiating a new enterprise agreement with Microsoft and the purchasing freeze is expected to yield 25% savings on our Microsoft license budget by substantially reducing the level of excess licensing."

"We are very excited to assist Nilit with their software license optimization initiative," said Dror Leshem, VP sales at SoftWatch. "This is yet another demonstration of the value of our Application Usage Analytics to customers throughout the globe who are facing growing challenges in controlling and optimizing their IT resources, and to our ability to help large enterprises to eliminate the wide spread phenomenon of excess licensing."
