License management challenges
The scenario described here is a case that could happen if you are using Confluence in the cloud version and have missed renewing your license. Other license management difficulties, not only with Atlassian products but in general, is the lack of transparency. You may have purchased many licenses at different times, but want to cancel or renew them at the same time.
Then there is the classic case that you have hired many new employees. This is a reason for celebration, but may require an upgrade of your current license subscription. Will the existing licenses be renewed as well?
And can you really say with certainty that you have chosen all your licenses according to your needs? Or are you in possession of licenses that you don’t even need (anymore)?
Why license management is so complicated with multiple licenses
Enormous time investment in addition to the actual daily business
Costs have to be tracked continuously
Licenses expire due to the lack of transparency
Risk of over-licensing and under-licensing
Budgeting becomes a challenge
Risk due to non-license-compliant installations
What is co-terming of license agreements?
The many challenges of Atlassian license management can be easily solved with co-terming of your license contracts. Co-terming means that all individual subscriptions on an account are configured to have the same duration. This way, all Atlassian and third-party add-on licenses can be managed simultaneously.
Managing multiple Atlassian licenses is greatly simplified with their co-terming, preventing a scenario like the one described above from occurring in your company.
Advantages of the co-terming of licenses
Reduction of procurement cycles
Simplification of budget planning
More time for the essential daily business
Always be up-to-date with the latest software
Easy simultaneous renewals/upgrades of all add-ons in your Atlassian ecosystem
No risk for missed license renewals
