Software Compliance Management: Automating License Compliance in the New, Mixed-IP Development World
Manual methods for managing IP are quickly proving to be insufficient, so leading enterprises are turning to new, automated IP management platforms-called software compliance management systems. These systems help ensure enterprises achieve the business acceleration they want from software reuse, while meeting the stringent requirements of shareholders, regulators, and customers for proper management of company assets and obligations. To stay competitive in today's software market, or to stay cost-effective in enterprise IT, companies must adopt these new methods for software development. Software compliance management systems are helping to unlock the potential of modular, collaborative development to significantly enhance profitability, reliability and ROI. This allows companies to maximize the value of their intellectual property portfolios, while minimizing the risks of exploiting mixed-IP software development.
