Segula Technologies adopts Altair's SAO solution

Altair announced that SEGULA Technologies, a long-time Altair HyperWorks customer, has adopted Altair’s software asset optimization (SAO) solution. It is used at SEGULA Technologies to monitor and optimize the daily usage of commercial computer-aided engineering (CAE) and computer-aided design (CAD) software licenses. 
 
It helps to control and consolidate software expenses across the enterprise and supports sound decision making on new software acquisitions and license renewals.
 
Altair’s SAO solution enables information technology (IT) and management teams to easily and efficiently assess the actual software usage of procured software licenses within the company. Usage analysis provides useful information to make appropriate and sound decisions concerning capacity planning, acquisitions of new licenses or right-sizing existing contracts. 
 
As a rapidly deployed packaged analytics solution, SAO supports popular license server management systems, including FLEXLM, FlexNet, LUM, LM-X, and many more. Based on information collected from all enabled vendor license servers, SAO generates consistent, on-demand reports about software usage for the enterprise IT landscape. SAO comes standard with interactive dashboards to visualize key metrics and trends and generate critical alert notifications via email and text message.
 
“We are very pleased with Altair’s SAO solution. It enables us to oversee our software inventory and usage, providing detailed information on utilization trends and behaviors based on real data. This makes software procurement and allocation decisions more objective,” said Christophe Guilloteau, IT Manager for calculation software at SEGULA Technologies. 
 
“We have had a very good relationship with Altair for many years and also use their CAE tools in our development processes. After evaluating several SAO options within a benchmark exercise, we chose Altair’s SAO to monitor and optimize our software usage because it is affordable and offers the best solution for our needs.”
 
“It is becoming increasingly important to monitor and optimize software usage,” said Mauro Guglielminotti, Country Manager, Altair Southern Europe. “A large engineering service provider like SEGULA Technologies uses many different software tools from a variety of vendors. Altair SAO enables companies, managers, and IT departments to consolidate costs and maximize the return on investment for commercial design and development software tools.”
