Software legality management support (license management) begins with periodical identification of software that users install and run on their work computers. The collected data is then compared with the purchased licenses information entered into the system, allowing to build the software legality formula. Historical data storage allows for detailed analysis of individual items. The ITManager system provides the ability to independently check the software licenses compliance against the software detected on workstations.
The actual software usage monitoring module is an optional extension of the audit functionality. Using the tool, you can evaluate whether the purchased software is used efficiently or not. Example: a user has a license for Microsoft Access, but uses it actively for 5 minutes per month. The analysis also helps in planning the purchase of the appropriate number of new licenses. This translates to the overall cost optimization thereof. It also allows to transfer software licenses between employees, if necessary, in order to maximize the resources usage.
