The “Business Side” of License Management

Managing expensive engineering software, across the enterprise, is more than just monitoring usage, and studying utilization statistics of “features”. This white paper addresses the business side of managing License assets and describes a “total management system” for engineering software. Managing the business side effectively can further reduce engineering software costs, provide more “business intelligence” for making better decisions, improve responsiveness, and insure Software License use compliance. We will look at the business elements of License management and why they must be considered a part of the management process.
