Why Buy IBM Licenses from LPA?

Lower Your Software Costs

According to Nucleus Research - Organizations that use IBM Partners for acquiring licenses are able to fulfill analytics-related business objectives at a lower cost:

"Partners help companies lower software costs in two ways. First, partners often eliminate the need for new analyst or query user seats by creating new reporting assets for specific user groups or analytical tasks. Second, partners can use their expertise about data cubes and asset deliverables to fulfill a business requirement that might otherwise be met with an upgrade to end-user licenses"
