Your Single Source for Software Lifecycle Management Resources

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).

73% of organizations don't have automated license tracking and reporting.
