IBM Vertical Lead

Koen Dingjan

Koen is an IBM software license compliance expert and the ITAA vertical lead for IBM. Koen has helped IBM customers worldwide successfully tackle key challenges such as IBM compliance audits, ILMT implementations and contract negotations.

IBM is one of the most complex software vendors to manage license compliance, due to its large portfolio of software products and wide variety of license metrics. Although IBM is traditionally known for mainframe software, the majority of IBM software sales are for on-premise software, as well as cloud and SaaS products.

Well-known IBM software brands include WebSphere, Tivoli, DB2, Cognos, Maximo, Watson, Rational, Informix, FileNet, InfoSphere and TRIRIGA.

Frequent software acquisitions, divestments and product name changes make managing IBM compliance a moving target. We have deep technical, licensing and audit knowledge for the full breadth of the IBM software portfolio and the experience to manage any IBM licensing challenge.

IBM Expertise

If you have been relying on generic SAM tools to produce compliance reports – which many IBM customers and license consultants do – you may have noticed they focus only on the PVU license model and rarely produce accurate results.

We replicate the external audit approach for all IBM licensing models, including PVU, RVU, Terabyte, Concurrent User, Floating User, MSU, Flexpoint, Cloud Pak, Storage Capacity Unit, Authorized User, Install, Simultaneous Session, Socket and Token. Our evidence-based audit approach is designed to produce solid audit-ready compliance reports and conclusions.
