Get the benefits of the ISO 19770 standard for software asset management

In Software Life Cycle Management Standards, David Wright calls on his vast experience to explain how the ISO/IEC 19770 standard applies to the whole of the software lifecycle. He gives up-to-date information using practical examples, clear diagrams and entertaining anecdotes. For software publishers and originators, the book explains each part of the Standard and what they all mean for developers. It discusses the software lifecycle from the perspectives of both the producer and the consumer/customer, and explains how the SWID and SWEID tagging systems can help you pin down the client’s software and usage needs.

Understand your assets and save money

Software customers and consumers will find the book’s advice useful in generating savings by reducing the need for multiple SAM tools, and reducing the need for the annual ‘true-up’ event. The book also explains how to perform continuous, ongoing management of your software's (or SaaS) lifecycle, including deployment, usage, patches and upgrades, and to measure these against your entitlements. It will help readers understand the true business value of their software investment and demonstrate how to achieve all of this, even if your software supplier is not delivering ISO/IEC 19770 SWID and SWEID tags.
