The Challenge of Internal Billbacks
How to bill back global license costs to all
participating cost centers worldwide
transparently and cause-oriented?
To make it more challenging
Touch and Pay
Hans Argenton
Fritz Kink
Infineon IT
Once a license has been checked out for the first time,
it has to be paid, regardless of the total number of
check-outs and their durations.

Solution Deployment: Results
Global acceptance and deployment
Global contracts now meet real license needs
Impartial monitoring of license costs per
individual project
Hans Argenton
Fritz Kink
Cost centers now are able to react to accrued
license costs within days

Solution Deployment: Experiences
Sharpens cost awareness
Impartial break down of global license costs to
individual projects improved significantly forecasting
and planning of project costs
Hans Argenton
Fritz Kink
Infineon IT
However, strong control and limitation of license
peaks still required in order to meet cost targets

Outlook and Further Research
Deployment of generalized cost-allocation
algorithm for business-related hierarchies (e.g.,
geographical regions, business groups)
Hans Argenton
Fritz Kink
Apply experiences and benefits of consolidated
license landscape to Infineon compute farms for
further increasing license efficiency and cost
effectiveness (e.g., most expensive software on
fastest CPU’s?)
