Software asset management (SAM) and IT compliance specialist FAST Ltd has teamed up with IT services house Civica to offer FAST's customers access to additional expertise around licensing and ICT planning.
FAST said the partnership meant its customers would be able to improve their overall efficiency through better software lifecycle management, as well as mitigate compliance risk and cut down their overall software spend.
They will also get access to Civica's services portfolio around desktop and server virtualisation, cloud readiness, storage and datacentre optimisation and security audit.
FAST Ltd managing director Matthew Barnes said the deal was an important step along the road to the organisation's goal of becoming a one stop shop for SAM and compliance services.
"Civica Services is a market leader in software and managed services; we considered a number of software resellers over a period of time and felt [they] represented the best fit for both FAST Ltd and our customers," he added.
