In a perfect world, managing the discovery of software assets, the capture of license entitlements and optimization of an organization’s software usage and compliance situation would be a single-click operation. Unfortunately, the world is not perfect and those charged with managing an organization’s software compliance, availability and expenditure face a number of challenges that can easily derail a Software Asset Management (SAM) program. This paper from the SAM experts at Snow Software investigates some of the major challenges facing SAM managers and IT executives and highlights how to build a successful strategy to overcome them, ensuring the SAM program delivers true value to the business.

Software piracy, whether accidental or malicious, is a problem for software vendors as these activities can directly affect the bottom line. Organizations that use software are affected as well. Along with rising software prices, they can face stiff fines and other costs for noncompliance with software licenses. This can come as a result of an audit that software vendors are more inclined to initiate in a lackluster economy. This white paper will discuss actions to take before, during and after an audit. As well as outline the best ways for the enterprise to remain compliant with software licenses.

The fundamentals of security and management of software have not changed. But the new computing environment – mobile devices, cloud computing and virtualization – requires new approaches to familiar challenges. What’s more, software publishers are bringing a new energy to their own vigilance. A capricious economy has many of them stepping up the number of customer audits. As organizations deal with these software licensing challenges, they also face increasingly sophisticated security threats that continuously morph, just a step ahead of remedies to stop them. Organizations need a comprehensive approach to security and software asset management. This white paper will examine the interconnection between SAM and security, offering practical advice on how enterprises can protect themselves and where to go for support.

All organizations require software systems to conduct daily operations. These strategic enterprise assets are often acquired or created in isolation of each other as an organization grows, particularly for those that provide services rather than physical products. Over time, these systems become complex, overlapping and highly dependent on one another, so more effort must be expended to discover the full effects of any system change. The ability of an entity to update, replace or improve the overall capabilities of the enterprise can become severely impaired. Moreover, support and administrative costs for these critical assets inevitably grow to be a major burden. Add to all this the need to control licensing, follow the organization’s policies and ensure security for the internal network, and it becomes clear that some manner of oversight is required for the enterprise to be successful.

We now live in a flash centric world where all active data must be on flash. This doesn’t mean, however, that all data must be on flash. The best approach is to understand your application mix and workload requirements. Some key apps, like databases, are latency intolerant and should be pinned to flash. Others apps can benefit from fully-automated storage tiering. EMC’s market leading VMAX and VNX systems are flexible choices that can deliver all-flash and hybrid services. CDW and EMC has you covered!
