Software Asset Management
Software constitutes roughly 18% - 37% of the overall IT operating budget.
If you’re not measuring your use against your license usage grants, you’re not managing it.
Don’t allow your organization to risk being under-licensed – buy all the software you need. Don’t waste money by being over- licensed. Streamline your IT processes to substantially reduce your risk of creating unknown liability from uncontrolled software distributions and installations.
The traditional view of Software Asset Management is focused on compliance. That’s the after-the-fact true-up for software installations and use where the liability has already been created from poorly controlled processes. There is, usually, just as much waste from over-licensing where, once controls are established, contracts can be renegotiated for significant cost avoidance and increased efficiency in your IT investment.
The new challenges:
- Automated provisioning of Virtual Machines that can create constructive liabilities of $10,000 or more in seconds.
- Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
- Cloud-based services, such as provisioning of SaaS applications.
Reduce costs with evidence-based decisions on software consolidations and licensing – particularly with the new licensing challenges from Virtual Machines, VDI and Cloud.
Streamline your IT processes to establish preventative management controls that substantially reduce your risk of unknown liability from uncontrolled software distributions and installations.
