ABSTRACT:

Today, many CIOs and their IT staffs are requesting verification services as part of their licensing agreements in order to validate the completeness and accuracy of their software escrow deposits. They realize that just putting software source code in an escrow account does not mean the software will be complete and usable, or even readable, if and when the source code is released.

This paper examines the types of verification services used in the escrow industry. It discusses why verification has become a best practice for both the users of software and the developers creating the applications, as well as a solid recommendation by the lawyers who advise them.

Also included is a case study of QBE the Americas, part of the QBE Insurance Group, one of the world’s leading international insurers and reinsurers.
