SOFTWARE ASSET MANAGEMENT

Software Audit Service

Phoenix Software provides all the components you require to complete a successful software audit. Conducted in complete confidence, our software audit services have been utilised by organisations of all sizes across Europe.

Our aim is not to act as a regulator for software authors and publishers but rather to help you manage your software effectively. Our Software Audit Service offers both a strategic and tactical solution, respected by leading members of the software industry. It can be broken down into the following five elements:

Pre-Audit Assessment

Before developing a Software Asset Management Implementation Plan, Phoenix Software can help you determine your state of readiness and assist in establishing your organisation's vision and strategy. To achieve this we will facilitate a number of workshops, interview the major stakeholders and deliver a risk assessment along with a comprehensive Project Definition Report.

Records Audit

Our experienced Software Auditors will reconcile your licence evidence and create a comprehensive Licence Inventory from which your organisation's licence entitlement will be aggregated. Establishing this baseline will enable you to meet your contractual obligations and understand your actual licensing position, thereby helping you to make more informed purchasing decisions.

Physical Audit

Our experienced Technical Consultants can determine the most effective approach for the deployment, management and metering of your software. Utilising some of the most advanced service management and discovery tools, such as License Dashboard™ Discovery, Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (formerly known as Microsoft SMS), IBM Tivoli, HP AssetCenter, Altiris, LANDesk, Centennial Discovery and many more, Phoenix Software will implement License Dashboard™ License Manager, the leading licence management tool that not only allows you to track your assets, but also can extend these solutions to automate the management of your compliance.

Verification Audit

Utilising the output generated from both the Records and Physical Audit, our software auditors are able to verify and provide a comprehensive report of your organisation's compliance status. This baseline will enable you to understand and review your compliance discrepancies and ultimately enable you to manage your compliance obligations more effectively.

Compliance Discussions

It is expected that on completion of the above deliverables, additional resource and time may be required to help further investigate the compliance discrepancies.

Phoenix Software can provide experienced resource to help further review the results, making recommendations on how best to remedy any compliance issues.
