Licensed by Server, Not User
GM-X application software is licensed by subsystem and production server, not by user.
Because most ERP and software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications are licensed by named user, the cost of owning these applications rises in direct proportion to the number of people using them. What seems at first to be a low entry cost can quickly spiral out of control, as the number of users grows to embrace all the internal and external parties who collaborate in business processes. Controlling these costs — and avoiding large unplanned expenditures arising from license audits — has become a major headache for overstretched IT organizations.
When you buy the GM-X application suite, you pay a modest perpetual-use license fee for each GM-X subsystem you deploy on a named production server. There is no limit to the number of users who can access these subsystems. As a result, the marginal cost of scaling your GM-X application software up to accommodate your growing user community is — zero. Likewise, your license management and compliance burden is — zero.
Scaling Up the Infrastructure
For optimal performance, scaling up the use of your GM-X application software will inevitably require more IT infrastructure — networks, servers and databases. To maintain high performance, while reducing and controling infrastructure costs, a growing number of Geoprise clients are turning to infrastructure on demand solutions using:
- Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings in the public cloud
- Private clouds leveraging server virtualization technologies
