Here’s what our readers considered a top IT priority in 2014
Looking back on 2014, it’s clear to us that IT asset management (ITAM), and more specifically software licensing, was a top priority for many organizations.
We published 93 posts in 2014, and eight of the 10 most-read articles explored various licensing changes from partners like Microsoft, Adobe, and Apple.
We’re not surprised. Software licensing is complicated, and the seemingly constant adjustments made during multi-year contracts make asset management that much more difficult. Because avoiding an audit is much more fun than responding to one, IT professionals must educate themselves on licensing changes, and how software licensing evolves over time.
Interest in ITAM is unlikely to ebb in 2015, particularly as increasing enterprise mobility and BYOD introduce new compliance risks. We’ll be here to help you navigate any modifications to your software asset management, as well as any hardware, cloud, or mobility advancements.
