Octopus Cloud View is an intelligent SPLA reporting solution that takes the pain out of SPLA management and optimises revenue through fast, intelligent reporting.

A better way to manage SPLA:

Microsoft’s SPLA licensing accuracy no longer needs to be in the hands of your customers while the responsibility for SPLA reporting to Microsoft is in yours. Now you can easily and quickly take that pain from your customers and report SPLA usage on time every time with complete confidence.

Program description:

Know that your current position is compliant, and your license cost is optimised moving forward.

  • OC View gathers all SPLA relevant usage and infrastructure in your environment to create an accurate usage report.
  • OC View then applies Microsoft SPLA licensing intelligence. Using rules created from the Microsoft Service Provider Use Rights OC View will calculate the license requirements for you.
  • OC View analyses the cost of license types and applies the most cost-effective license to the use case.
