Testimonials and reviews

“Barry is an expert in Software Licensing, he undertook a piece of work to review our license requirements and was quickly able to allocate licenses across our estate where they had previously been incorrectly allocated and removed the requirement to procure further licenses.  I would recommend Barry to anyone who requires an independent license review of their estate.”

“I have worked with Barry on numerous SAM and licensing assignments. From this I have gathered that his strong technical, commercial and licensing knowledge are a clear asset… A rare mix of skills to find and an even rarer set to see executed in the practice of this discipline. This leaves me able to say with confidence, that Barry is one of the ‘best in the biz’”

“Supporting BAU license activity, also acting as a key point of knowledge on complex license requests, and aiding us in making the most of our existing investments.” 

“…worked as an advisor to solution designers and architects, to implement the best, cost effective solutions in many high level projects, often highlighting cost avoidance during these exercises.

“He is able to cut through the complexity to get to what’s needed.”
