Used licenses as the key to sustainable IT

DThe trade in used licenses is an example of a functioning circular economy in the digital sector. Instead of a throwaway culture, a life cycle approach is encouraged, where products and resources are kept in circulation for as long as possible. In addition to the ecological advantages, purchasing used licenses also offers economic advantages. Companies can reduce their software costs, which in turn frees up funds that can be invested in more sustainable business practices.

Does traditional on-premises software still make sense?

Yes, traditional on-premises software can still make sense, especially considering the current challenges and concerns surrounding cloud usage. A crucial point is data security: With cloud services, there is an increased risk that sensitive data will be unintentionally disclosed. Many companies do not yet have the necessary know-how to manage these risks effectively. In addition, the IT budgets required to build and maintain a secure, modern cloud infrastructure are often not available. 

Maintaining independence also plays a major role, as companies do not want to become dependent on external cloud providers. With experts predicting that the cloud business will take years to solve all business-critical problems, using on-premises software remains an attractive and viable solution for many companies.

What influence does digitalization have on the used software market?

Digitalization in companies has a significant impact on the used software market. With the increasing shift to the cloud and the rapid evolution of the IT landscape, particularly in medium-sized and larger companies, one might assume that the need for traditional on-premises software is decreasing. However, reality shows that the transition to the cloud must be carefully planned and strategically implemented, with aspects such as data security being crucial. This results in organizations that view a direct move to the cloud as less than ideal or that lack the resources for a full migration to continue to rely on on-premises or hybrid solutions.

This scenario is driving demand for used software as companies look for cost-effective ways to expand or upgrade their existing systems without investing in expensive new licenses or relying entirely on cloud solutions.
