ILMT Configuration and Management 

ILMT is one of the compulsory requirements for IBM customers who want to benefit from IBM’s sub-capacity licensing terms.  Problems with the set-up, configuration and ongoing management of ILMT are common in many organisations, leading to large-scale compliance issues in the event of an IBM audit.  

Beginning with a free ILMT health check, FisherITS can work with your team to help your business become eligible for Sub-capacity licence discounts, avoid audit surprises and huge penalties and gain full visibility of IBM software deployments in data centres.

    OUR
    EXPERTISE

    As a Manager at FisherITS my main focus is our portfolio of IBM licensing related services. I’m passionate about helping our clients to understand and improve their complex IBM licensing estate and gain confidence in navigating through the IBM universe.

    I started my career as a member of the IBM SAM team where I experienced all parts of everyday SAM operations while taking care of mid-sized and large customers. In recent years my focus has turned to assisting clients that are interested in internal audits to ensure their IBM estate is correctly and optimally licensed, and defending customers going through an IBM audit.

    I also lead the FisherITS portfolio of services around the IBM License Metric Tool to help customers avoid sub-capacity non-compliant surprises.
