Do you know how many vehicles (cars, vans, etc.) there are in your corporate fleet? Do you know who's driving them, where and when? Of course, you do. Or at least you know the person in your company whom you can ask, and they will provide you with the information quickly and precisely.
Do we know how many software titles there are in our company? Do we know the costs of software and maintenance per year? Are we sure that we’re compliant with the terms of the software license agreements that we signed? Are we sure we are getting the best possible deals when purchasing or renewing software licensing agreements with vendors such as Microsoft, Oracle, Symantec and others?
Software is a valuable asset which is often neglected, despite the serious amounts of money invested. Not having enough licenses (under-licensing) is one problem. Over spending (over-licensing) is another one, and just as serious. Knowing what you have and where it is is a starting point to successful license management. Vendors are constantly changing and shifting metric and license policies, so being compliant in one moment doesn’t mean that you’ll still be compliant next week or next month. Properly managing these assets and making them strategic is the goal of the Software Asset Management (SAM) process. This is not just an “IT related issue”. It concerns finance and controlling as well. Being aware of the problem is the first step. The second is doing something about it - preferably, proactively.
