Winning Strategies to Beat Software Audits

How to Turn Risk into Opportunity

Many software vendors have adapted the way in which they use software audits, shifting from an occasional activity to a significant source of revenue. Whilst these tend to be aligned with contract renewal dates, they can occur at any time of year.

Software vendors will rely on their data to demonstrate what they think you owe in non-compliance, leaving many customers at risk of financial penalties if they have not got visibility of spend and usage.

Instead of accepting vendor audit data, it is possible to counter with an accurate view of software deployment, configuration, licensing and usage data. This guide provides critical insights on how to do this, covering:

  • The critical importance of effective software asset management to control compliance
  • The different types of audits and how to be audit-ready
  • Strategies to deal with audits from the big 5; Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, IBM and VMware
