License management

License management (Software license management) describes that process that an enterprise undertakes to secure the legal and efficient handling of proprietary software in that enterprise. License management makes sure that the conditions of use of the individual products in the enterprise are complied with and that the investments in software licenses are no greater than necessary.

why your enterprise needs license management

The use of software products as well as license agreements with their terms and conditions contain complex regulations on how the software may be used. The right to use the software product that has been acquired is established by the producer and must be respected, when used by the enterprise and its employees.

Software/licenses are the means to an end and are often procured when necessity strikes. The strategic possibilities, agreement optimizations and continuing use of existing licenses are only rarely kept track of. Documentation and data storage of license verifications are neglected. Liability risks are the result. License violations are discovered too late or really only revealed as the result of an audit by the software producer.

Unfortunately, the dangers that arise through incorrect licensing and the potential for optimizing an agreement or inventory are, as a rule, underestimated. The danger of a request to disclose one’s own license situation and the pursuit of license violations by software producers make the field of “License Management” a necessary component of risk optimization and maintenance of compliance.
