The Vendor Management (VM) department is part of the Distributed Services (DS) organization, whilst providing services to both the DS as well as non-DS departments. DS is responsible for the delivery of agreed upon IT services to the business as well as an effective and optimal exploitation of the IT infrastructure. All this with the goal of ensuring the availability and performance are within the agreed upon limits and realized in a cost efficient manner.
The license manager reports hierarchically to the manager Vendor Management. The role has a truly transversal responsibility. The stakeholder field of the License manager AF role covers the whole organization (including Development), from VPs/Directors to operational teams.
The VM team operates in a growing market, whereby increasingly business critical IT services are (partially) outsourced. This requires proper (relationship) management with a vendor to ensure engagement and commitment on both sides, such as to realize the continuity of the various services and obtain maximum vendor/contract value. Next to this, the volume and complexity of licenses within the organization is increasing and complicated by a.o. the move towards the Cloud. This also requires (more) active management within to organization optimize license usage and avoid (high) penalties following license audits.
