Gartner Research Note G00235172, Published 3 July 2012
Managing software entitlement and license compliance continues to pose a challenge to asset managers. Given the sheer number of vendors that a company might do business with and the myriad ways the applications are licensed, it is no wonder that organizations struggle to deal with this problem.
Read the “Software License Optimization Vendor Overview” report from Gartner to learn more about:
- Ensure that the inventory data is accurate and sources are reliable. The success of the software license optimization tool is premised on this data.
- If there is an existing ITAM repository tool or configuration management database (CMDB) in place, ensure that out-of-the-box integrations are available with the software license optimization tool.
- Select a software license optimization vendor based upon its ability to support licensing models across the software portfolio, not just the vendors that are problems today.
