Organisations today spend millions of dollars of their IT budget on software licenses for the enterprise. Yet despite this significant investment, many companies do not understand how to optimise their investment in these software assets, nor do they have the resources. This can result in cost increases and lost productivity. Even more, for those companies governed by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, failure to put processes in place to manage ongoing software license compliance could mean steep fines for the company and personal liability for their executives.
According to Gartner, U.S. businesses continue to overbuy licenses for 60% of their portfolio and are non-compliant on another 30% of their software assets. Gartner also estimates that companies that have programs for managing their software assets can experience up to 30% in cost savings in one year. So why don´t more businesses have a software asset management (SAM) program? Because compiling and tracking contract and licensing data with installed software, as well as measuring its usage, is time-consuming and complex.
