Software Asset Management
Managing volume licensing for your software investment is a complex task. Organizations need a licensing strategy that aligns with their business goals and budget objectives – and that takes into account new, emerging technologies as well as future ways of working. Moreover, you need to be prepared to negotiate with software companies to protect your interests and serve your needs for the long run. ISG takes a deep dive into your current software licensing data, analyzing past agreement performance and developing a definitive, effective position for modeling future licensing options. Plus, we uncover licensing issues that may have resulted from recent mergers, acquisitions and divestitures that are not always reflected in your licensing statement.
An in-depth analysis of your organization’s environment and strategy as it applies to a specific technology or user group reveals ways to increase efficiency and cost-savings. We provide a comprehensive roadmap detailing your organization’s past, present and future uses of its software stack and how it will impact your strategic licensing decisions going forward.
