An intimate knowledge of what software has been purchased—and more importantly, what has been deployed—is crucial to surviving an audit. What was once a messy guessing game is now a more civilised approach thanks to Ivanti solutions.
SOFTWARE AUDIT SURVIVAL
Software vendors want your money
Software vendors are looking to cash-in on your ineffective licence-tracking methods. If you're still logging licences on a spreadsheet (hey, it's better than a bar napkin) then there's a good chance you'll have to pay up.
More than two-thirds of organisations can expect an audit in the next year. Additionally, more than half of businesses report they've been audited more than once in a 12-month period—and the outcome can be costly. In an effort to avoid those costs, many organisations overbuy licences, but that wastes money and is totally unnecessary. Ivanti gives you confidence in your licence position by helping you proactively manage your vendors.
Survive your next software audit with confidence
Knowledge Is Power
Take action before auditors come knocking
Many companies wait for an audit to hit them before taking control of their software assets. Big mistake. The damage is done in the form of true-up costs, fines, and legal fees. Failed audits can also harm an organisation's reputation, so don't dawdle. Take action now with Ivanti and make your next audit as painless as possible.
