Vendors selected for the “Cool Vendor” report are innovative, impactful and intriguing
Tel Aviv, Israel, May 14, 2012: Xpandion Ltd., a leading provider of software solutions for enterprise security and licensing products for SAP®, today announced that it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the Cool Vendors in ITAM, 2012 report by Gartner, Inc. The report, published on April 12, 2012 by Gartner, refers to the challenges enterprises face in accurately determining IT assets; justifying IT resources; and reducing risk management costs. Xpandion's LicenseAuditor presents an innovative and intriguing solution that addresses these challenges by achieving significant optimization of SAP licenses.
A member of Xpandion's ProfileTailor™ Dynamics Suite, LicenseAuditor leverages the company's cutting edge technology, which analyses the actual behavior of users in the system rather than theoretical measurements such as user titles and authorizations. In addition, this unique behavioral profiling capability accelerates accurate identification of duplicate and inactive users, which otherwise incur unnecessary expenditure.
Xpandion's unique behavioral analysis technology is to be presented by one of the company's key customers at the SAPPHIRE NOW event in Orlando: Session 1010 "The Benefits of Advanced Behavioral Analysis" Wednesday, May 16, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM (Session ID 1010).
