We work meticulously, are detail-oriented, love researching and handling data. We make the License Library a unique platform – a little bit more every day.
The License Library is the world’s most comprehensive knowledge platform, supporting every decision in the software license life cycle with reliable, editorially prepared information and topics. Companies of all sizes and from all sectors use our unique, vendor-independent product to clearly determine and understand software usage rights and SaaS SLAs at all times. In addition, the License Library integrates seamlessly with market-leading IT solutions, where it acts as a critical quality data provider. With certified content that is always simple and easy to understand, it supports the management of software and cloud services. The License Library stands for a high degree of usability and the use of current technology. It reduces effort and guarantees an individual user experience tailored to the user’s requirements.
The License Library is a reference database for those responsible for software license management that provides its users with valid, complete and comprehensible information from a central source. Data quality and availability play a key role in this. Our team adds new content to the License Library and enhances existing content on a daily basis. Our users can report non-existent content, which we compile for them. License-related information then only needs to be retrieved and no longer laboriously researched by the users themselves. This helps ensure that tasks in the specialist departments can be completed faster, more reliably and in a more targeted manner. We also make our data available to license management systems, giving these systems a much deeper database, which benefits both the system’s functionality and the end user’s day-to-day work.
Unique and independent
As a pioneer, the License Library combines content and services that have not yet grown together in this form in any other place. The many years of dealing with license-related data and the vendor-independent, neutral view of the content is a novelty!
Knowledge from one source
The License Library is the all-in-one data source for you as a license manager. It replaces the endless search for the right usage rights and the tedious study of license conditions. It combines licensing and commercial content, provides access to broad and specialized topics, and supports all users with individual questions.
For customers of all maturity levels
Whether you are a beginner, advanced or professional in software licensing – the License Library helps even “part-time” license managers to manage their operational work and supports experts to gain more freedom for strategic issues. It supports customers from all business sectors and provides SAM tool providers with valid data.
Reliable data quality
Data quality plays the most important role in license management and thus also in the License Library. All content in the License Library is subjected to a comprehensive research and approval process before publication. Official documents and proofs, direct manufacturer contact and comprehensible statements result in a remarkable depth of data that you can rely on.
Internal knowledge platform emerges
A scientific thesis accompanies the introduction of a digital knowledge platform, which CCP Software GmbH will use in the future for internal storage and provision of license-related knowledge.
Maria, thank you for the kick-off!
First licenses issued
CCP decides to publish the internally grown knowledge platform under the name CCP License Library and to make it available to enterprise customers. The Knowledgebase becomes the first section of the CCP License Library, Terms&Guides (today Product Guides) follows as another section. The first enterprise-wide license to use the CCP License Library is issued.
System and brand come of age
A more flexible content management system replaces the knowledge platform introduced in 2013. The Master Agreements, SKU Tracker and Use Cases areas are being built. Users can open EULA check tickets. The service is now marketed under the name License Library and is shortlisted for the ITAM Review Excellence Awards.
Variety of topics and customer benefits increases
When a software product is added to the Knowledgebase area, more than 40 use rights are now checked. The OSS License Review and Font Licensing sections add to the standard scope of the License Library. Users can now submit free license support tickets.
Further specialization and milestones
Software as a Service products can be accessed from the Knowledgebase area and include detailed information on data and security aspects in addition to usage rights. The License Library contains license knowledge on more than 1,000 software publishers and details on over 1 million commercial license items.
