SOFTWARE LICENSE OPTIMIZATION

In a perfect world, managing the discovery of software assets, the capture of license entitlements and optimization of an organization’s software usage and compliance situation would be a single-click operation. Unfortunately, the world is not perfect and those in - charge with managing an organization’s software compliance, availability and expenditure face a number of challenges that can easily derail a Software Asset Management (SAM) program.

Software Asset Management – the management of the lifecycle of software applications and licenses across the corporate network – is often portrayed as something of a turnkey solution with a high level of automation. While that’s certainly the aim of an effective SAM strategy, the reality is that managing software and license entitlements is a complex operation that requires a careful mix of people, processes and technology.
