Required - A robust software asset management process.
BLC is a boutique technology services company specializing in Software Compliance Review, Software Audit Defense, Software License Optimization, and Technology Asset Management. The BLC process is a forensic analysis of environment footprint, technology spend, usage, policies and strategies to enable strategic decision making.
All companies need an asset management process that accurately tracks license allocation and entitlement. Software licensing is already complex and will become even more challenging as vendors change licensing rules to accommodate new technologies, virtualization and cloud-based or subscription services.
Whether your technology environments are self-managed or operated by a third party there is a persistent requirement to maintain license compliance. Failure to achieve asset management transparency increases financial risk and opens the door for vendor audits.
BLC recommends a proactive and continuous Technology Asset Management (TAM) process. Our approach uses data science to deliver greater cognitive and predictive analytics that drive action. These actions result in operational efficiencies and reduce financial waste, creating incremental bottom line value.
