Livingstone Success Story

Large UK Retailer – 35K assets

Service Highlights

PoC to SAM Managed Service

  • Livingstone initially chosen to prepare for and defend a Microsoft true-up/self-declaration.
  • A 3-year multi-vendor managed service was the result from the initial PoC engagement.

Major Wins

  • Livingstone’s lead Microsoft specialist helped the customer successfully conclude a Microsoft true-up / self-declaration resulting in £0 being owed to the vendor.
  • During the initial engagement, Livingstone also identified large risks across other core vendors.

£0 being owed to the vendor

Continuous Improvement:

  • On-going management of core vendors including VMWare and the previous large out of control Oracle estate, has considerably reduced risk.
  • Regular reporting via Luce and monthly executive meetings ensures key stakeholders such as the CIO are kept up to date with vendor licensing positions.
