Infrastructure Delivery and Implementation

Project-based infrastructure delivery services

GHS advantage™ service bundles include pre-defined assessment, implementation, project management and support. These services help clients maximize IT investments and drive quicker business results.

GHS advantage™ includes three primary types of offering

Software Audit Defense

It’s not a question of whether you will be audited but when

From incorrect reporting of sub-capacity licensing to creating virtual instances without permission, most organizations are not compliant with their software licensing. Typical non-compliance costs range from $500k to more than $3M. Software Audit Defense from GHS can help your organization mitigate the many threats non-compliance poses to your finances, technology and operations.

Solution Advantages
  • Mitigate any financial exposure non-compliance may present
  • Avoid having to enter into Enterprise Agreements (pre-committed spends)
  • Insulate against premium-priced software and forced, lop-sided agreements (ELAs)
  • Maintain software currency
  • Ensure correct software assets are in place
  • Proactively ensure that all entitlements are up to date and being used as expected upon initial purchase
  • Minimize disruption to operations
GHS Provides
  • Specialized insight to protect your rights, limit the auditors’ reach, quantify exposure and advise on remediation
  • The knowledge, expertise and data to help you make the best decisions for your organization
