IT teams must equip themselves to recognize the unique challenges involved with the latest software licensing options in order to avoid unnecessary licensing exposure.
Southlake, Texas (PRWEB) August 15, 2017
Software licensing options for large enterprises have evolved substantially over the past several years. 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 were previously unavailable absent extensive negotiations are now regularly offered.
“IT teams must equip themselves to recognize the unique challenges involved with the latest software licensing options in order to avoid unnecessary licensing exposure’, said Scott.
