It’s safe to assume that software and licensing are pretty low on your everyday agenda, but when business don’t know how much money they are wasting, they don’t count it as a loss – unlike a fine for non-compliancy, which could be just around the corner.
This can be complex, and it’s not uncommon for businesses to employ somebody to manage software licensing, only for that person to drown in a multitude of varying, complex licensing models.
Even if you think you’ve got it under control, accurate management can only be achieved with accurate data around software entitlement.
Organisational siloes are another concern. Who procures software in your business? How many departments procure ad hoc? How much shadow software is lurking in your business? These are all important questions that often can’t be answered.
