Software license management ensures compliance with a given software’s End-User License Agreement (EULA). However, the costs associated with software licensing usually takes up the majority of the cost base within an organization. This necessitates an organization’s sourcing and procurement teams to explore various licensing models before selecting the right model to suit their needs. Moreover, the rapidly occurring technological advancements and digital transformations have changed the way businesses conduct themselves. It is now entirely possible for procurement teams to optimize and track their software portfolios using a software license management tool. Also, a good software license management tool will help plan future purchases and maintain business continuity; thereby, assisting firms to generate meaningful insights that drive strategic business decisions.

This webinar aims to deliver organizations an overview of software license management and how it helps companies to document and track their software portfolio. It also helps them gain actionable business insights in real-time. The event will offer valuable information, which will benefit the entire procurement team, including the procurement managers, VP sales, sales directors, and procurement officers.

Main topics to be covered:

  • What is software license management?
  • Why should organizations have software license management in place?
  • How procurement teams can yield cost optimization with better software license management
  • Consequences of non-compliance with software licenses
