New software licensing provisions can result in complex software asset management obligations.
Southlake, Texas (PRWEB) November 01, 2011
“Software licensing options for large enterprises are evolving almost as quickly as the mission-critical software solutions those companies deploy,” according to Julie Machal-Fulks, partner of intellectual property and technology law firm, Scott & Scott, LLP.
Businesses today have more options and flexibility to meet their software needs. However, with that flexibility often comes complex software asset management(SAM) obligations. Licensing models that once would have required custom agreements with unique protocols (if they were technologically feasible in the first place) now are offered alongside the “traditional” licenses in increasingly dense menus of choices for IT teams to weigh.
Ms. Machal-Fulks and associate Christopher Barnett will address how businesses can avoid unnecessary licensing exposure and expense when they understand the unique challenges the new software licensing options present.
