Software Asset Management

Over licensing or under licensing?

Not giving enough attention to license management can be a large risk. A recent survey to licensing questions (Softwareinitiative Germany 04/2010) shows that in 2010, nonlicensed software will damage the German economy by up to 30 billion Euros.

The creativity of large software producers has become an increasing burden on IT budgets. After a relatively short time, by changing their licensing metrics and marketing strategies, and also through software updates, it becomes possible that existing customers must obtain additional or new licenses or they will get in legal uncertainty. This successful method of distribution via “license and maintenance” has quickly become the standard because of its high profitability.

With the OfficeASSET Software Asset Management module you can always control your licenses. Software packages installed in a company are determined by using a software scanner. This guarantees reliable licensing.
