National Institutes of Health chooses Aspera for Software Services

Aspera, the leading global provider of solutions and services for Software Asset Management (SAM) and part of the USU Group, today announced that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has signed a $5 million agreement to use Aspera SAM services and related tools to manage their enterprise software inventory.

Aspera is a service provider that brings an enterprise-level SAM tool to integrate with NIH’s existing software discovery tools and infrastructure environment, such as IBM BigFix, SCCM, and ServiceNow. Aspera’s experts will provide analysis and recommendations to NIH of future approaches to NIH’s software needs, especially for widely used products such Oracle, Adobe, Symantec, IBM, and others.

“The Aspera team had a complete commitment during the RFP and POC processes,” said Mel Passarelli, Aspera’s President and CEO. “We answered all of NIH’s concerns and technical requirements, and showed the value of having in-house experts behind our tools and data processes.”

By using Aspera’s product portfolio and in-house services team, customers improve their ROI and make better software decisions. Aspera has offices in the USA, Canada and Europe, and operates worldwide across a global partner ecosystem.
