Understanding and Optimising Software Assurance: Part 2
Conclusion: Determining the optimum licensing mix involves not only an understanding of Software Assurance, but also consultation with the organisation’s business strategy groups, as well as a firm understanding of potential structural changes, such as mergers, de-mergers, acquisitions, and growth strategies. Getting the wrong mix can result in overspend, or worse, an inability to adopt business strategies such as mobility, activity based working, or bring-your-own-device.
