Overview

Over the years, organizations have been slapped by audit notices from Software Vendors one after another. Software License Audit agenda has evolved from addressing non-compliance to revenue generating focus over the past few years. Being Ex-Auditors, we have ourselves have witnessed situations where organizations have faced huge penalties despite using best of breed SAM Tools. The Audit methodologies adopted by auditors are aimed at finding evidences that can prove current or historical usage. Additionally, the audit methodology is also aimed at finding systems logs and details that evidence usage type (remote, external user, etc.). This methodology is different from the one used by SAM Tools for operational reporting and hence organizations face surprises all the time.
