Software assets and their licensing bring in complexities as it typically involves multi-user software with enterprise, transaction, processor, concurrent user or named user constraints. Being compliant requires knowledge on what software has been purchased, installed and that the usage or the installations do not exceed the purchase. It also involves knowing what software is being used, it’s license usage rights & restrictions.
Non-Compliance can lead to potential penalties, unbudgeted license “true-up” expense and corporate embarrassment. It’s generally seen that the complexity and the risks involved make organizations overestimate or underestimate their software needs in their efforts to balance cost control and end-user productivity. These mistakes can significantly impact the profitability of the entire enterprise.
