Software Licence Audits - survive and take advantage

Avoid expensive software audit settlements and penalties

A recent IDC survey shows that 63% of companies in North America and Europe were audited for “software licence compliance” last year, where one third paid more than £200,000 for audit settlements and penalties.

Getting your house in order by implementing a robust Software Asset Management framework is the ultimate solution for your ‘audit problem’ – however change at this magnitude often consumes significant time and resources, and your vendors’ auditors will not wait until you are ready.

Therefore, knowing how software audits work and deploy tactical measures to manage and defend them is essential to help you minimise exposures while you are still on the journey towards total compliance. Our whitepaper, Software Licence Audits – Survive and Take Advantage, is written specifically with this objective in mind. Sharing our experience gained over the past 20 years working with the world's largest audit programmes, the whitepaper is a must read for IT, Procurement and Finance managers who are driven to keep their cost of software under control.

What is covered by the white paper?
  • Facts: Fundamental knowledge of the licence audit business
  • Survival: What happens in an audit and how to watch your every step
  • Take Advantage: Why licence audit can be good for you and how to reap the benefits
