Software Asset Management: Collaboration and Control

As software expenditures claim an increasing proportion of budgetary resources at a time when those resources are shrinking, software asset managers and budget offices are caught between the need to provide a robust software environment and the need to make software dollars go further.

Tools and business processes that enhance, or remove impediments to, collaboration are becoming essential to the accomplishment of these sometimes competing objectives. These may include more robust asset tracking across and within organizational units, centralized purchasing, and the creation of central license repositories among other initiatives.

The presenters will discuss tools and solutions they have found useful in pursuit of this collaboration and participants will be asked to share their successes and challenges as well.
