Consolidate Your Unused Software

Today’s Innovation in Government Report highlights the government’s IT modernization challenges. David Wray, the chief technologist for Micro Focus Government Solutions, says agencies can go down a simpler path to save money for future upgrade initiatives.

I think the IT Asset Management Institute has estimated, at least in the federal space, over a billion can be saved, and most agencies have an estimate anywhere from 20-30% of over-utilization of software across their enterprise. Especially with some of the large enterprise software that's out there today, they simply can't count very well, and they don't have enterprise tools for procuring and managing some of the software for some of these large vendors like Adobe, Microsoft and Oracle.

There's an opportunity here to just focus on one or two vendors and consolidate your unused shelf-ware and your software across your agency to very quickly generate savings.

Let Micro Focus Government Solutions, Carahsoft and their reseller partners help you imagine what your agency is capable of. Learn more at
