Licensing, Entitlement Management and Delivery
Integrated Software Licensing, Entitlement Management and Delivery Solutions
Applications no longer just help the business, they run the business, and to software producers and, increasingly, intelligent device manufacturers, they are the business. Yet most companies manage application usage tactically if at all. Excel is among the most common automation tools for much of software license management and software compliance. Few other strategic business assets are as undermanaged or as in need of a strategic solution as application usage.
To compete and win today, software vendors and intelligent device manufacturers must go to market faster with differentiated product offerings, ensure they are fairly compensated, make every dollar spent count and retain every single customer. All of this must be done while facing substantial hurdles. According to Business Software Alliance and IDC research conducted in 2011, more than $63.4 billion worth of software was stolen. Thriving in this environment requires a strategic solution for Application Usage Management.

Intelligent device manufacturers are increasingly battling commoditization and the risk of grey market abuse of their core hardware products and many are turning to embedded software as a means to differentiate and protect their offerings in a highly competitive market. Unfortunately, too many fail to see the strategic impact of software and, therefore, fail to deploy a strategic solution for Application Usage Management.
Software license management, electronic software delivery, software compliance and entitlement management are usually not top of mind when you're working on your latest product breakthrough. But, increasingly, failure to implement a strategic solution for Application Usage Management is placing software vendor revenues at risk.
