Workspace Management Now Includes Oracle

Matrix42 and nova ratio form OEM partnership

Matrix42 expands its workspace management solution with a determining of inventory verified by Oracle, which features analysis functions for the correct licensing of Oracle databases. This function expansion supports companies in the active planning, monitoring, and controlling of their Oracle license management. Analysts estimate that approximately 70 percent of the total costs of software licensing and the respective maintenance are generated in the data center. However, the correct licensing of server software is also a challenge due to the combination of complex infrastructures and complicated license conditions. This either results in high financial risks from under-licensing/incorrect licensing or significant saving potential that cannot be exploited, often in relation to Oracle database software.“The close partnership with nova ratio AG is of strategic important to us,” explains Oliver Bendig, CTO at Matrix42. “The area of compliance is one of the key solution modules in our entire portfolio. Our customers constantly thank us for the huge benefits our workspace management solution with integrated license management provides them with, particularly in the data center.” Torsten Boch, Senior Product Manager at Matrix42 and Head of Compliance Products, highlights the specific advantages of the nova ratio solution, “Oracle itself has verified this solution. Our customers can therefore rely on the fact that their analyses and decisions are based on valid information and compliance is guaranteed at all times.” The components for determining of inventory from nova ratio are seamlessly integrated into the Matrix42 workspace management platform. All information is provided to the user via the same interface, which also comprises all other functions for the area of service and asset management. Customers can subsequently handle all license information in the convenient way that they are used to with a high degree of transparency and data consistency for all processes. “We are absolutely delighted to be entering into strategic collaboration with Matrix42,” comments Gerhard Wagner, CEO of nova ratio AG. “A market leader in the field of modern IT management, Matrix42 is the ideal partner for providing our powerful tools for determining of inventory for Oracle databases to an even more extensive customer base.”“The Matrix42 Oracle Database Compliance product option is predominantly designed for companies running more than 100 servers in their data center. It will be supported by the new version of Matrix42 workspace management, which is set to be released at the end of April.”
