Software Asset Management
IT Asset Management practices ("ITAM" with the particular focus on Software part of Assets) have gained broader attention of CIOs and IT Directors in Central Europe over recent years. Hardware and software purchases typically can make up 40% of an organization’s IT budget. A significant percentage of this budget is often spent on unused service and support costs, turning software licensing into a risk that needs to be addressed. Vendor audits further increase the stakes, resulting in unexpected budget increases to comply with the audit request and expenditures to buy missing licenses.
