    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

    When it comes to software licenses, there are five types that you will need to consider. This includes Public Domain, Permissive, LGPL, Copyleft and Proprietary.

    Software license management is crucial because it involves using the right tools and processes to manage the software products that you use within your business. Software asset management is important because it will ensure that your business complies with all enterprise license and end-user license agreements and that is why software license management solutions are critical for all businesses.

    Software licensing will give you the ability to use a certain type of software and it will also allow it to be used by an agreed number of users. If you use more than agreed, then you won’t be compliant which is why software license management is a crucial part of your software asset management policy.

    An IT asset management system will ensure that all of your assets are accounted for, deployed, maintained, upgraded and disposed of when necessary. The asset manager software will enable your asset manager to actively monitor assets and manage software licenses, helping you to keep control of assets within your business.

    Asset management in the IT industry will involve specific processes that consider the life cycle management of assets and support decision making. Software licensing solutions and management tools will enable you to detect and protect your assets by giving you the ability to see what software and hardware are used within your IT environment.

    End user license agreement is a legally binding licensing agreement between the owner of a product and the end-user and so, licensing a software product will give the owner control of it. The end user license agreement for software will help to protect the product owner and it will also put rules in place that will stipulate how the end-user will use and manage the product when they use it.

    There are many elements involved in controlling software licenses but software license compliance management is crucial. This will involve gathering all licenses and information related to them. You will then need to prove that you are entitled to them and then ensure that you manage the costs and spending associated with the licenses. You should also set reminders that enable you to renew and maintain software licenses as this will ensure you maintain software license compliance.

    Choosing a software license will depend on whether the software is free, purchased or it contains open-source code. There are three different types of license including a Broad license, GNU license and a EULA license and they all give you software license control.
