Software audits and compliance "true up" horror stories have lots of companies investigating better ways to track their software licenses. Staying within vendor's rules is just the beginning. The higher goal should be to wring the most use out of software at the lowest cost, taking advantage of discounts while eliminating shelfware and inappropriate licensing terms.

Join this episode of InformationWeek Radio to learn how to make the most of your software budget with Amy Mizoras Konary, a research VP with IDC who focuses on software pricing, licensing, and delivery. You'll learn about:

  • Moving from simple license tracking to proactive license management and optimization
  • Avoiding compliance problems by anticipating sticking points such as virtualization
  • Aligning what you're using with what you're entitled to use
  • Coordinating CFO, purchasing, and IT policies and practices to get better terms.
