We are pleased to welcome Octopus Cloud to the rhipe vendor portfolio.”

Both organisations have highly qualified licensing and cloud experts who aim to help their service providers by converting data into meaningful values, optimising and reducing the number of applications and systems, with the best possible licensing or consumption models, customised to their business.” 

Octopus Cloud was founded in 2012 by three passionate experts, each with their own unique skillset, who knew there was a better way to approach SPLA licensing and cloud migration. The organisation has managed over 500 SPLA projects to date, helping IT service providers and their end customers optimise business processes around license management to drive greater value from their investments.

Its core solution, Octopus Cloud View, is the first worldwide KPMG assessed and automated SPLA reporting tool for Microsoft service providers. It delivers a transparent view of the licensing landscape, clear audit trails to ensure compliance and accurate reporting, to enable partners to optimise license purchasing to improve margins or reduce costs.
