Software asset management

​Like any other business asset, you need to effectively manage your software investments to ensure they deliver their anticipated returns.  Without proper software asset management focussing on the lifecycle of your current and future investments, you'll lack visibility regarding:
  • your software requirements 
  • what your vendor licensing agreements entitle you to
  • the enterprise software you currently own

This makes it difficult to budget accurately …and increases your risk of non-compliance with software vendor licensing programmes.

How well are you really managing your enterprise software solutions?
