The software industry can feel like a boxing match, with vendors in one corner and customers in the other. Software vendor companies make incredibly useful products. Unfortunately, they do not make their licensing and compliance information the same way. However, the problem is obvious: you can’t enjoy the products without paying the price, even if it’s not clearly communicated.

Many companies see a return on investment the first year. This means that businesses that have discovered and invested in software or hardware asset management have found that with some reasonable effort and a few months they can…
- Equip themselves with solid facts about their software environment and usage.
- Make sound decisions about their IT environment.
- Get the upper hand when it’s audit time.
- Feel confident about license consumption.
