Software licensing is complex and varies from vendor to vendor. Not only is there a need to comprehend how each product is licensed, but also a thorough understanding of the licensing schemes available. It is therefore easy to over spend on software licence purchases, and only through good advice and process can significant savings be made, firstly by understanding the total requirement and then applying the most cost effective licence strategy.
In my experience Software Asset Management is often just a posh name for licence management – but it should be a lot more than that…
What I like about the Trustmarque approach is that although it has been firmly based on licence management, TESG is expanding its scope to cover more of the managed service delivery space; and talks about ‘value delivered’ as well as cost savings.
