Cyndi Tackett, Vice President of Presales at Flexera Software, discusses the key best practices in Software License Optimization she is seeing in the most successful companies. Best practices encompass a broad 3-5 year roadmap for how applications will be deployed, taking into account virtualization, bring your own device (BYOD), cloud and SaaS deployments.
They also cover the buying process, understanding whether or not you’re getting full buying leverage across the enterprise, a process for supplier stratification and ensuring alignment of purchasing with the consumption of applications. Lastly, best practices account for a software license compliance strategy that ensures alignment between procurement and consumption and the ongoing management of applications which increasingly includes the deployment of an enterprise app store.
