A Flexible Cost Model to match a Flexible Licensing Model
Many organisations have serious challenges when it comes to systems and software development resource planning, which often means scarce resources such as server capacity, skills, and licences can be under utilised at different stages of the development cycle or, even worse, development teams find they do not have relevant access to the tools needed to complete the project.
Development capacity can change radically throughout the systems and software engineering process, which means that trying to plan resources based on forecasting is impossible. To help bridge that gap, our flexibility does not end at a licensing stage and we take a flexible approach to license costs. We ask for no up front fees and we have a no minimum term policy that applies to all of our licences.
Whatever your budget, we will work with you to provide the best possible capability which is enhanced by the flexibility in our licences.
Already have a Licence?
The Bring Your Own Licence (BYOL) option offers flexibility to existing IBM® Customers who have already procured licences either directly or with other business partners. The BYOL option allows you to access your existing licence via a Software as a Service (SaaS) infrastructure and gives you the option to utilise the cloudbaSE service package.
