Pooled Licensing - Efficient Tool Utilization

When an organization purchases a software/hardware tool, it most often purchases a license for the features associated. These licenses are the soft dollars that can eat into budgets and pop up unexpected expenses down the line if not understood completely. Although new features may be missed, getting the most of purchased licenses is key. Pooled licensing provides the efficient utilization of tools within any organization. Pooled licensing can take many forms. Small organizations will use remote desktops to share a static license among many users.

Promoting Tools --- You Already Own

Every organization needs to purchase tools. Typically a long drawn out process where a lot of people review, critique, and ask for changes, inclusions, and items to be removed. Now that you've got your shiny new tool you just need to figure out how to get everyone to use it. Some place it at the feet of the tool vendor, some to training departments, but few have a method of universal acceptance. Sometimes this is just fighting human nature and the resistance of change, while other times it is simply communication.
