Companies today are facing a greater possibility of software audits, yet many are also spending too much on software because of the number of overlapping tools and applications in their portfolios. Most IT departments are consumed with the daily challenges of service delivery, so software asset and contract management often turn into “rainy day” activities. When an audit happens, they can be caught off-guard and the company can be exposed to serious and unplanned financial consequences — and in some instances, individuals may be exposed to criminal liability.
