When the sudden onset of the coronavirus pandemic upended the way we do business a little over a year ago, how quickly did your company move from an office to a work from home workforce? Did you accurately keep track of the software licenses deployed as part of the move? Did you stay within the agreed terms of all of your licensing agreements, and can you accurately account for what is deployed today – and to whom?Are you prepared for the COVID 19 Software Audit(s)?

Some companies turned to virtual technologies, and others purchased additional physical devices to meet their employee’s work from home needs. Regardless of the approach, license compliance may or may not have been a concern at the time, but very well could be in the future. The good news is that what may have been done to keep things afloat is in the past, and now is the time for companies to start preparing for the future.
Knowing what you own, what you have deployed, and what you are using is key, as software publishers may see this as an opportunity to help you right-size or true-up what you have deployed.
