Case Study: ARUP – Optimization engineered £4 million in cost avoidance
AUDIT SUCCESS & COST-AVOIDANCE SAVINGS
Arup has a large and complex IT estate of 12,000 laptops, 6,000 desktop workstations and 600 servers, scattered across 42 countries. Operationally, the group is split into five regions and this adversely impacted effective Software Asset Management (SAM). Enterprise Agreements with software vendors were concluded on a regional or even site level, making it impossible to re-harvest inactive licenses across the group. Arup realized it had to act to bring costs under control, and hired IT consultants Softcat.
