The Five Most Frequently Raised Issues by Software Licensees

12 oct '10 - Mark van Wolferen - share: LinkedIN Mail

Has your organisation invested in a SAM tool or process? Were your requirements met or did the issues persist or return? Are you about to make a decision on how to address your organization's SAM needs?

Whatever your perspective, we invite you to review the findings of our latest report “Communication Pitfalls – Bridging the gap is the key to stop IT polarization.”

Software Asset Management (SAM) today is a well developed and mature industry. There is an ISO standard, hundreds of tools and thousands of consultants are devoted to SAM but many people remain sceptical about the efficiency and value of traditional Software Asset Management. The ideas are compelling but perhaps the experience and the delivery has been less satisfactory.

We at B-lay decided to review the 5 most frequently raised issues and the subsequent results that we encounter in our engagements with software licensees. We decided to consolidate the findings into a discussion document and look at ways that these issues can be addressed.

Ongoing license control is difficult to achieve, but periodic self audits can help you stay in control, remain compliant, and stay one step ahead of software publishers. Conducting these audits requires sound understanding of common mistakes and where to look for them. This can be especially challenging in a continually changing environment with new products and versions of products being deployed.
