Successful Practices for Software Asset Management

Any effective organization requires software systems to conduct daily operations. These enterprise assets are often acquired or created independently as your organization grows, particularly in tech and digitally oriented fields. Over time, such systems inevitably turn complex, overlapping and highly dependent on one another, taking more resources to discover the full effects of any system change. 

The ability of an business to update, replace or improve the overall capabilities of the enterprise can slowly become severely impaired. Worse, support and administrative costs for these critical assets inevitably grow to be a major burden. Add to all this the need to control licensing, follow the organizationís policies and ensure security for the internal network, and it becomes clear that some manner of oversight is required for the enterprise to be successful.
