Compliance Managed Service

Maintain Software License Compliance to Reduce Software Audit Cost and Risk

Reduced Audit Risk Means Fewer Unbudgeted True-ups

The goal of this intermediate level managed services software is to provide organizations with a Software License Compliance Position based on ‘purchased versus installed’ license reconciliation. By understanding its license position, organizations can maintain continuous software license compliance and reduce the risk of software audits. Eliminate unbudgeted audit true-up costs and negotiate with your vendors from a position of strength. The Compliance Service includes all of the Inventory and Data Normalization Service components and deliverables.

Business Problems Addressed:

The Compliance Managed Service will provide the following benefits:

  • Monthly License Consumption and Software License Compliance Reports
  • Monthly Report of Unlicensed Applications—these are applications that have a non-zero install count but don’t have a license allocated
