complexity of software
licensing due to cloud
The challenge. Cloud migrations can often result in non-compliance of existing IT supplier contracts and software licenses.
The reality. Suppliers will tout Bring Your Own Licensing (BYOL) as a cost benefit, but the onus of maintaining contract compliance always remains with the customer.
The Impact. Being unprepared for your cloud migration can run the risk of violating licensing rights, grants and current entitlements — resulting in significant fees potentially owned to vendors.
By partnering with Connor, your company can identify potential non-compliance issues ahead of any public cloud installations, which can help save you millions of dollars in IT vendor fees. Also, we can provide recommendations on how to best optimize your existing software licenses in any target cloud environment. Connor has deep experience and subject matter expertise in the areas of contract compliance, software audits and public cloud.

PDG - WW Finance & License Compliance at ARM
As a licensee in the past, I was tremendously impressed by the ability of Connor’s team to be comprehensive and pleasant to work with. I appreciated their efforts in particular to teach us best practice, and it’s why I hired them later when I became a licensor. I strongly recommend Connor team to any licensors that wish the check the compliance of agreements, while maintaining good relationships with their licensees.
