The development and sale of such complex solutions for so many specific application cases means that the licensing system, which monetizes Vector`s unique capabilities, must be just as dynamic and versatile – the perfect challenge for the Wibu system and the CodeMeter, protection and security licensing platform. It allows Users of Vector products to choose the license container that best meets their specific needs, whether it`s a hard but easy-to-use dongle or a software container on Vector`s own inhouse solution, the vector network interface (VNI) for easy access to licenses for example. B in a development task force. With the entire CodeMeter backbone-based licensing system and seamlessly integrated into Vector`s well-established distribution organization, it`s easier than ever for customers to purchase licenses for new products or add licenses for additional features like. B the addition of support for different network protocols to Vector`s simulation and testing tool. Wibu-System`s solution focuses on CodeMeter License Central, the cloud platform for licensing creation, delivery and management. CodeMeter License Central has been fully integrated into Vector`s SAP system by the committed partner Informatics of Wibu-Systems, an SAP centre of excellence based in Austria. With the fully integrated version of CodeMeter, Vector can now manage its licenses centrally via the CodeMeter License Central dashboard, increasing the performance of support and distribution processes. The backbone of the system for setting up, supplying and managing licenses is CodeMeter License Central, fully integrated into Vector`s SAP system by Wibu-Systems` committed partner, Informatics, an Austrian centre of expertise for SAP.
Wibu-Systems and Informatics bring together years of experience with SAP and CodeMeter to leverage their joint projects. Built into CodeMeter, Vector can manage its licenses centrally through the comfort of CodeMeter License Central Dashboard, making support and distribution processes easier. Because the licensing and licensing management system is cleverly linked to SAP, licenses can now be created and delivered immediately after a product is purchased. Users can access, activate and enjoy their vector software without delay. Vector Software GmbH was founded on April 1, 1988 by Eberhard Hinderer, Martin Litschel and Helmut Schelling. In 1992, the company changed its name to Vector Informatik GmbH. In the same year, the first CANalyzer license was sold and the company achieved for the first time a turnover of one million euros. In 1996, the first CANoe and CANape licences were sold. Vector faced the challenge of protecting its proprietary technology from piracy and distributing licenses securely to its customers in their format of choice.
Vector wanted to offer with the solution a lightweight delivery model that seamlessly integrates into the existing SAP production landscape. As a forerunner of the future of mobility and a leading innovator behind sophisticated technologies for charging electric cars, safety and safety concepts, Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles and the ADAPTIVE AUTOSAR PLATFORM-FORME, Vector`s business depends on Vector selling thousands of licenses each year. Protecting its technology from piracy is a challenge Vector faces with its defense network interfaces (VNIs) and licenses related to a combination of Hardware containers and Wibu-Systems software. Integrating this system into the production landscape and streamlining delivery required a lighter, more standardized solution that was directly integrated into the company`s distribution processes.
