»Many sourcing, procurement and vendor management leaders consider only the size of the software audit settlement when determining how successful a software audit was. However, capturing the many other impacts accurately will support the case for license compliance and audit management controls.« (Gartner, February 2020)

If your organisation implements Software Asset Management, the probability of an audit and the associated (financial) risks will be reduced. By implementing SAM processes, assigning SAM roles and responsibilities and using a professional SAM tool, software vendors are assured that they are not using their software incorrectly. As a logical consequence of this, vendors usually choose not make use of an audit.
