ABSTRACT:

Effective software asset management supports both cost effectiveness and cost efficiency by matching inventory with actual deployments, thereby helping to reduce over- and under-licensing. For example, an organization might discover a software asset that is used but not covered by contract, therefore increasing the risk for a compliance violation. On the other hand, an asset might be deployed and contracted but not used, in which case it can be removed and the licensing costs diverted to other activities.

A comprehensive approach to software asset management can also reduce costs through automation. Through automated processes and the ability to link key information, organizations can help eliminate the countless hours and IT resources required to manually inventory, monitor and maintain software usage.
