Aspera and Raynet further consolidate as technology partners

Aspera, market leader in the area of Software Asset Management (SAM) and Raynet, leading software manufacturer providing solutions for the entire Enterprise Application Lifecycle Management, further consolidate their strategic partnership on a technological level. In December 2019, both companies signed a software license and distribution contract for the implementation of their products. Therefore, RayVentory becomes a central part of Aspera’s SAM solution SmartCollect. Customers will benefit from a holistic solution, that focuses of both data gathering and processing.

“Every license management solution is only as good as the data that is received and processed. Till today, this is a challenge for every customer. With the Raynet OEM partnership, we will now cover this topic entirely”, says Olaf Diehl, Director Product Management & Marketing of Aspera. “In the recent years we have known and appreciated Raynet as a reliable partner. RayVentory has repeatedly convinced us of its efficiency and flexibility in many projects. With the completion of our SAM solution by the Discovery & Inventory product, we are able to add a significant and great value for our customers”.

In recent months, well-known customers have already been convinced by the perfect interaction of these solutions. This synergy effect results from the mutually complementary product concepts and the technological market leadership in the areas of Software Asset Management and Inventory. The impact is a significant saving potential through permanent and holistic transparency of the entire IT infrastructure.

As part of the cooperation, there will also be a coordinated development process in which the experts of Raynet and Aspera bring in their specialist knowledge. “With the unique expertise of both companies, the market receives a solution that sets new standards and sustainably extends the possibilities of Software Asset Management”, says Ragip Aydin, Managing Director of Raynet GmbH. “We constantly pursue our motto ‘Discover to manage’. Accordingly, we create a unique solution that makes it possible to capture all technologies – from clients to industry machines up to intelligent waste containers. Our vision is to cover the entire industry 4.0, IoT as well as IIoT."

Since 2014, Aspera and Raynet work closely and successfully together in the area of Software Asset Management. The decision to extend the strategic partnership to a technological partnership takes the collaboration to a new level. Both companies agree on a software license and distribution contract. The agreement, that unites both products, was signed in December.
