BOSTON/PARIS – MEGA International, a global software firm recognized as a leader in enterprise architecture for 13 consecutive years has partnered with Eracent, a leader in automated Software Asset Management (SAM) and IT Asset Management (ITSM) solutions that helps organizations meet the challenges of managing software licenses and computing assets. This partnership offers organizations the ability to gain complete visibility into their applications installed on-prem or in the cloud using cross-platform automatic discovery and lifecycle management of technologies.
“We forged this technology partnership with Eracent to give clients an even greater ability to understand the business value of IT assets by providing visibility into the capabilities and business processes these assets support,” comments Luca de Risi, Chief Operating Officer of MEGA. “As companies accelerate their digital transformation initiatives, it is key to assess the criticality of applications to understand which ones are essential to support strategic business initiatives. With this new partnership, our aim is to help clients establish more efficient asset management processes, reduce security risks resulting from technology obsolescence, and optimize their use of IT assets, software licenses, and subscriptions.”
The key features and benefits organizations can expect from this software partnership include:
- Automatically discover technologies and applications installed on-premise and in the cloud to better manage technology lifecycles
- Accelerate time to value, greatly reducing the time and effort needed to fill the enterprise architecture repository to document the current state
- Improve alignment between IT and business objectives and greater ability to focus on defining the future state needed to support transformation projects
Eracent’s technology is seamlessly integrated into MEGA’s HOPEX IT Portfolio Management and HOPEX IT Business Management solutions ensuring IT portfolio managers can quickly discover the technologies used by their organization. They can normalize them to initialize the application inventory and retrieve software technology component lifecycles including end-of-life (EOL) and end-of- support (EOS) dates from an online library to avoid security risks resulting from no longer maintained technologies or applications.
Eracent solutions are fully integrated and perfectly complement MEGA’s HOPEX solutions to accelerate enterprise architecture projects and reduce IT obsolescence and security risks through technology lifecycle management.
“Eracent is pleased that MEGA’s customers will be able to maximize the value that they receive from the HOPEX platform by leveraging comprehensive, accurate data about the technologies they are using”, stated William Choppa, Eracent’s Chief Executive Officer. “Some of the world’s best-known organizations have benefitted from using ITMC Discovery™ and the IT-Pedia® Product Data Library, and we look forward to having a strong relationship with Mega and their clients.”
Eracent has focused on developing comprehensive IT Asset Management (ITAM) and Software Asset Management (SAM) solutions since 2000. These tools help our enterprise clients optimize their spending around hardware and software licensing and subscriptions, automate and streamline their ITAM and SAM processes, and reduce corporate risk around software publisher audits and network and endpoint security threats.
