Make Software Lifecycle Management a Top Tier Priority to your Business Strategy

In the past Software Lifecycle Management (SLM) was thought of as a nice to have or something you quickly cobbled together if hit with an audit. Today, organizations have realized that having a proactive SLM engagement that combines the best in people, process and technology provides a level of actionable information to a company that allows them to drive change, save money and keep their software estate protected. Today’s blurred lines of on-premises and cloud, lack of visibility into who owns what and which employees are using what software, bloats budgets and leaves companies vulnerable to audit and data insecurities. SLM can stop all of that, allowing your in-house teams to focus on more strategic priorities.

SLM Challenges

With the increasing adoption of cloud services & the complexities of a hybrid environment, Procurement and IT Asset Managers must adapt to eliminate wasteful consumption while minimizing non-compliance across multiple technology environments. As a result of this shift, organizations are faced with the following Software Lifecycle Management (SLM) challenges:

  • Data & Analytics: Collecting quality deployment and usage data across diverse IT environments and clouds and providing other roles with insights.
  • Contract & Cost Management: Properly managing cloud services, license entitlements and contracts, allocating costs and monitoring consumption.
  • Governance: Improving maturity with clear policies, processes and responsibilities supported by the executive team and followed across the organization.
  • Effort & Cost Optimization: Purchasing software and cloud services based on real needs and leveraging available use rights with reasonable effort.
  • Risk Mitigation: Reducing risk exposure through an audit defense mechanism of improving security by discovering and removing unwanted SaaS software (Shadow IT).
