  11. 11. Aviogroup Requirements  Key priority  Getting actual data on SW resources usage was becoming essential and "in-house" or existing commercial solutions were not holding up to cost and feature constraints  The starting point  We were looking for a supported product working with multiple License Manager vendors  We needed flexible and powerful analysis capabilities  Our target was to implement optimization strategies

  14. 14. The solution  After evaluating the alternatives we:  Selected the Open iT platform  Enrolled Polimatica for helping in the project  The project:  License Managers (FlexLM, LUM & Sentinel) were instrumented with the LICENSEAnalyzer®  Workstations and Pcs were instrumented with LICENSEOptimizer® and SYSTEMAnalyzer®  A single, centralized, database started to log all the data
  15. 15. The Project  Select the group of users to be involved  Install Open iT on a dedicated centralized server  Start system's instrumentation  Deploy the LICENSEAnalyzer® client on 13 License Servers  Deploy the SYSTEMAnalizer® data acquisition module on 500 clients (workstations & Pcs)  Define the methodology for the analysis and the required reports
  16. 16. Key Reports: Max Concurrent Used Licenses
  17. 17. Key Reports: Run Time at Concurrency Level
  18. 18. Phase 1  The target is to find actual usage levels and patterns  The initial focus is on:  LICENSEAnalyzer® This module collects and analyzes application license usage providing insight on several utilization metrics.  SYSTEMAnalyzer® This module collects and analyzes how HW and other system resources are used on each client providing insight on actual system obsolescence and on local applications usage
  19. 19. Phase 1 Findings: Actual Level of Concurrency MAX AVAILABLE CONCURRENT LICENSES 64 Max Concurrent Licenses Used between July 2007 and July 2008 46
  20. 20. Phase 1 Findings: Run Time Distribution
  21. 21. Phase 2  The target is implementing optimizing actions  The focus is on LICENSEAOptimizer®  This module detects active application usage. Inactive applications can be suspended and forced to release the acquired license  It allows for enforcing a better usage policy resulting in a faster circulation of available licenses among users.  This policy can be fine tuned to assign different levels of service to different user groups
  22. 22. Phase 2: The Targets  The target is to define the optimal number of licenses in the following scenario:  Achieve the maximum efficiency level  Acknowledge a 15% increase in demand forecast by the business  Grant the same service level without any impact on the users
  23. 23. Phase 2: The Optimal Number of Licenses MAX CONCURRENT LICENSES AVAILABLE 64 Max Number of Concurrent Licenses forecast for 2009 (15% increase over actual 2008) 53 Max Concurrent Licenses Used between July 2007 and July 2008 46 Optimized Number of Concurrent Licenses Required for 2009 (assumes 15 licenses being reclaimed by LICENSEOptimizer®) 38
  24. 24. Phase 2: Checking the Impact 38
  25. 25. Project Results  Phase 1:  40% reduction in yearly costs  Phase 2:  15% increase in the user demand  14% further reduction in yearly costs  Total yearly cost reduction achieved: - 47%  Project Payback:  Less than 6 months
  26. 26. Next Steps  Extend the metering to:  More Engineering application  Other locations worldwide  Leverage available historical data for:  Finding further areas of savings  Optimizing office productivity application usage  Implementing active HW obsolescence policies
  27. 27. Conclusions  Open iT proved to be a valuable tool  High ROI  Fast Pay Back  Effective  Open iT long term benefits are just emerging  A comprehensive database enables further discoveries  Support for a wide range of metrics allows to address many sides of IT infrastructure optimization
