Nutanix announced that the company is now an approved vendor for the Software Licensing Program (SLP) with the state of California. This allows state and local agencies, as well as educational institutions in California, to buy Nutanix software at an agreed upon discount under the SLP. Californias SLP program is administered by the Procurement Division of the Department of General Services. It was established in 1994 and negotiates extensive software discounts with software publishers from which agencies and government institutions can benefit. With organizations increasingly requiring hybrid and multicloud solutions, including public sector agencies, they require modern IT infrastructure solutions to drive their critical priorities and digital transformation initiatives. For example, in 2019, 53% of global public sector organizations exclusively ran traditional, non-cloud-enabled datacenters. In 2020, that percentage dropped to 22%. This program is expected to provide public sector agencies in California an easier and more cost-effective procurement path when purchasing Nutanix software, simplifying their path to digital transformation. The contract will be implemented by the following Nutanix partners: ePlus, E360, CDW-G, On-Par and Impex.
