Software Governance and Readiness

Don’t get caught off guard by a surprise software audit.

Proactive software audit preparation ensures compliance, mitigates risks, and safeguards assets. Be prepared, stay compliant, and protect your bottom line with confidence.

A surprise software audit can create unnecessary pressure on an organisation.

The uncertainty of the audit outcome, the task of coordinating with various internal teams, and the associated resourcing requirement is a pain that is easily relieved by a proactive and prepared approach. We can ensure you are always prepared for an audit by managing the key elements software vendors often use to their advantage.

We are here to protect and guide you through the process of becoming audit ready.

With our dedicated team by your side, you can confidently maintain compliance, sidestep costly penalties, and focus on the things that matter to your business.

We assist you in preparing for potential software audits from major publishers.

Based on our experience, when clients can demonstrate their preparedness and knowledge of their software position during initial discussions with vendors, the vendors tend to take a step back. Our Audit Readiness service enables you to confidently navigate a potential software audit by managing the following key elements:

ITAM Data Coverage and Quality

Keep your software vendors in check by ensuring your ITAM data is comprehensive and accurate.  Avoid being caught off guard when vendors discover their software installed in obscure network environments.

License Entitlements

Take control of your license entitlement position and dispel the myth that vendors keep an accurate record of your licenses.  Our Audit Readiness service provides an accurate and up-to-date license entitlement position and a consolidated view of the associated proof of entitlements.  This ensures you have a complete and transparent understanding of your licensing status and can avoid unexpected licensing costs or compliance issues.

Effective License Position (ELP)

An ELP is not just about comparing software consumption to entitlements.  A comprehensive ELP considers crucial business contexts, such as valid exemptions and exclusions, potential remediation paths, and optimisation opportunities.  This approach ensures that your organisation is compliant and making the most of your software investments.  Don’t settle for a cookie-cutter ELP that only scratches the surface.  Let TMG help you achieve a tailored and strategic approach to software licensing.
