Every large company is confronted with either an audit by a software vendor or a so-called ‘friendly review’, which is usually more compulsory than is implied. Companies are often scared when the audit letter falls on the doormat, and this reaction indicates that things are not in order. Unauthorised use of software can have major consequences, such as huge fines and a serious dent in your reputation.
It is important to realise that setting up SAM is no mean feat; meaning proactivity is desirable, and waiting is not an option. For software suppliers, the audit has become a primary source of income, making an audit increasingly likely.
