It’s the first phase of SAM: a manual or automated inventory of all the software installed in PCs, workstations, servers and other company’s devices. The collected information are useful to draw up a first that gives an exhaustive overview of the software equipment.
Once the software products in use have been identified, the next step is to check the license documentation in relation to the software licenses. In this way, it is possible to verify, for certain products ,if there are a number of licenses that are lower or higher than installations.
Criteria and procedures adoption
Once identified the products owned by the company and how they are used, it is necessary to define and/or review criteria and procedures according to the personnel, so as to guarantee a correct resources management. Criteria application areas include software acquisition, distribution, use and recovery.
