Any company that uses software has a moral and legal obligation to ensure that it is fulfilling its licensing requirements. Not knowing how or where software is being utilised within a company is bad business practice. But this is not simply a technology issue. The mismanagement of software can also cost a company its reputation and bring its directors face-to-face with legal and financial penalties. This guide will highlight the key issues surrounding software asset management and help them devise and implement an effective strategy that will protect their business and their reputation. It includes specific advice on: auditing current software usage; identifying counterfeit software; avoiding legal and financial penalties; and, taking advantage of volume licence discounts. This guide is part of the popular "Director's Guide series", published by the Institute of Directors, which gives business leaders clear, practical advice on key issues, with real life case studies.
