In order to effectively manage their software usage and to mitigate software license-compliance exposure, companies need to know how to gather information regarding their product usage.

Christopher Barnett

Five data sources often are sufficient to enable a company to complete most of the work toward validating their license positions for many different products.

Senior Scott & Scott, LLP Attorney Christopher Barnett will present "Fundamentals of Software Audit Data Collection" CLE* Webinar May 16th, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT.

While some software products may have unique data-collection requirements that ordinarily would not be applicable for other products, usage levels for many products can be measured using a common set of reports that companies can prepare themselves to gather. Understanding what datasets are required, why they are relevant to licensing obligations, and how to gather them all are critical components of successful software asset management.

In this free CLE* Christopher Barnett will cover:

  • Challenges and Risks of Inaction
  • Identification of Basic Datasets:

o     Hardware Inventory
o     Virtualization Inventory
o     Software-Deployment Inventory
o     User Data
o     Use-Characterization Data
o     Entitlement Data

  • Common Challenges Encountered in Data Collection
