Product Licensing & Compliance TRIBOM M3 - AVEVA

AVEVA’s software licensing policy seeks to achieve three objectives:
- To make it easy to acquire, use and benefit from AVEVA technology
- To ensure that licensed users are provided with the highest-quality products and close technical support, enabling them to operate their AVEVA deployments effectively and with confidence
- To maximise industry confidence in AVEVA software by preventing its unauthorised use, misuse, modification, copying or distribution, and by identifying and prosecuting distributors and users of unauthorised or counterfeit versions of our software

We implement this policy by:

offers a flexible range of licensing options that may be selected or combined to suit the specific requirements of individual customers. This flexibility allows the software deployment to be tailored to the number of users, project size, duration or location of use and ensures the highest possible return on investment.

2. PRODUCT & CUSTOMER SUPPORTRegistered users effectively become partners with AVEVA, not only benefitting from our normal Product Support service, but also able and encouraged to alert AVEVA to any issues or opportunities for improvement they encounter when using our software. This two-way dialogue between AVEVA and its user community is one reason for the high quality of our products and the confidence our customers place in it.

Needless to say, this close support does not extend to unlicensed users.

3. ANTI-PIRACY MEASURESPiracy and counterfeiting are a global threat to many industries and those who rely on them – not even aircraft spares or pharmaceuticals are immune from it. Software piracy damages not only the IT industry itself, but also the industries that rely on it, and it unfairly distorts competition in a free market. In the engineering industries, the use of inauthentic software can lead to serious consequences; users may have no way of knowing whether the tools on which they rely have been maliciously corrupted or are deficient in some way.

To protect our customers’ interests, AVEVA rigorously investigates and takes action against software piracy. We are corporate members of the Business Software Alliance against piracy and welcome any information which enables us to identify and, if necessary, prosecute users or distributors of pirated AVEVA software.

HOW TO REPORT PIRACYIf you know of, or suspect, any illicit use, copying, or counterfeiting of any AVEVA products, we invite you to report it to our License Compliance team at, or through your local AVEVA office. All such information is handled in strictest confidence.
