Are you prepared for a software audit?

Proactively identify and mitigate compliance risk

Due to the complex nature of software licence terms, organisations are often under-licensed and exposed to significant compliance risk.

Software licence audits are becoming more frequent year after year and the most recent Gartner statistics indicate that over 65% of organisations can expect an audit at least once per year.

We are experts in software licensing and can analyse your compliance position, identify compliance risks and help you proactively mitigate those risks so that you won’t get any nasty surprises if (or when) you are audited. Don’t wait to be contacted by a compliance auditor. Get in contact with us today on 1300 557 916 to learn more about how we can help you identify and mitigate compliance risks.

  • I gained so much out of the course. Troy shared his wealth of knowledge using real world scenarios gained from his background as a Software Licence Auditor to clarify the software use rights of a number of commonly used Microsoft products installed in a number of common scenarios. He provided useful resources and tips so that after the seminar, I was easily able to confirm Orrcon Steel’s correct licensing position.

    The knowledge I gained has enabled me to be smarter in the way I have licensed our virtual SQL Server environment meaning we are now compliant without having to purchase 4 additional SQL CPU licenses (a saving of $28000).
