CA Technologies and Aspera GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of USU Software AG, announced an OEM agreement under which CA Technologies will embed Aspera’s industry-leading SmartTrack license management technology in its industry-leading CA IT Asset Manager software.
CA IT Asset Manager helps organizations reduce the risk of license compliance and optimize the cost, management and distribution of existing assets.
Findings from the latest annual survey conducted at Gartner's IT Financial, Procurement and Asset Management Summit again show higher numbers of audits year over year. In the same research note, Gartner recommends that “CIOs should invest the funds needed to ensure that robust asset management is in place and effective, and that asset management staff are empowered to ensure compliance."
Software license agreements with vendors can also be highly complex, making it difficult for customers to get maximum business value from them while also rigorously maintaining compliance with licensing terms.
Aspera’s software license management technology complements the broader CA Technologies Service Management solutions portfolio, which addresses all aspects of software, hardware and network resource ownership on-premise and in the cloud—along with associated IT operations.
Aspera also delivers its technology as a cloud-based service, which aligns well with the CA Technologies IT Management-as-a-Service (ITMaas) strategy.
