BSA Senior Vice President for External Affairs Matt Reid said, “As a top-20 global software company, Dell is an important addition to BSA’s membership. It has a shared interest in the same issues that other BSA members face, such as protecting intellectual property, opening global markets, and fostering the growth of cloud computing. We look forward to combining our energy, resources, and voices to promote continued growth for the whole industry.”

Slickey License Manager

About to hit the ground running is Slickey License Manager;

Slickey makes it easy to deploy boxed, licensed products with enterprise deployment tools.

Up to now, packagers, administrators etc have been hampered in smaller businesses as generally, these type of small to medium companies have purchased software as and when it is needed, and not worried about volume licensing until its too late!

Obviously, it is not a viable option to create multiple packages/applications for the same product with different license keys…

Slickey allows you you create one package or application which ‘checks in’ to obtain available license keys from a central server. This the logs the machine name and date of license retrieval. Similarly, the uninstall will ‘check’ the license key back in once the software is removed.

As you probably already know, this could save thousands in licensing.

Its still a young product, but one which could not only save companies a lot of money, but also save system administrators a lot of time. This all improves efficiency of IT systems – which, lets face it, is the reason we all do what we do!

Check out the website, comments would be VERY gratefully received and welcomed!
