Viavi Solutions Selects Gemalto for Software Licensing Management

March 29, 2019

Viavi Solution touts global leadership in communications test and measurement and optical technologies. Embracing the SaaSy reality of today, Viavi ventured into a phase of software license management system transformation, and recently Global Software Licensing Engineer Bob Irvine offered insight into what the change provides.

Irvine noted that over the last 12 months, Viavi has migrated eight different product lines to Gemalto’s (News - Alert) software licensing systems and the results are resounding. He went on to explain how end users are seeing some serious positives.

Instead of navigating multiple systems, Gemalto offers a single licensing management system to provide the customization and flexibility required to deliver tailor made solutions fit to meet customer demands.

In addition, typically the initial sale is the easier than renewal due to gaps in expiration – i.e. it takes time and team members to manually track renewal cycles. By automating this process, enables higher conversion rates. The capability to deliver customizability in a timely fashion with a more personalized touch goes a long way in boosting the bottom line.   

“Reducing internal complexity with single system for fulfillment makes things simpler, easier,” Irvine explained. The software vendor is also working to deepen automation via the Gemalto system to further simplify operations.

Irivine noted that at the end of the day, the real value here is being able to make your product fit specific market needs, to maximize efficacy and offer an optimal solution for whatever your software license management needs may be.
