Extending audit's horizons

When your organization is proposing to conduct a software audit, you have an opportunity to consider a much wider and longer lasting set of objectives and benefits.

Organizations using software should:

  • Understand what software the enterprise needs, by evolving application deployment policies to define who should have what;
  • Monitor software usage to locate unused copies that can be redeployed, and to target training;
  • Maintain an accurate inventory of installed applications to ensure legality and that software is up to date.
  • Maintain a centralised register of license purchases and maintenance to ensure license compliance.

All these management activities service a new goal that Vector identify as software asset optimization.
