Acresso Software today launched the latest version of its flagship FLEXnet Manager product designed to provide broader support for enterprise applications and back-office software, and give customers a more accurate picture of their software use.
FLEXnet Manager 12 features the ability to monitor, manage and report on the use of software including Oracle databases, SAP applications, product lifecycle management tools and event-driven architecture tools.
Built-in analytics functionality from Cognos is designed to provide improved reporting and allow better management of software use, reducing the risk of costly non-compliance with licensing agreements, according to Acresso.
"Companies are becoming aware of the options to reduce overspending and manage future spending more carefully," said Roger Bottum, senior vice president of marketing at Acresso.
"Without a solution like FLEXnet Manager, the effort required to better manage complex entitlements outweighs the benefits, so many enterprises instead continue to renew inefficient contracts and end up spending much more than they need."
Acresso FLEXnet Manager retails for around £34,400 for an enterprise-grade package.
