SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS CREATE LEGAL CERTAINTY

A total of 62 percent of CIOs estimate the financial loss resulting from incorrect licensing at up to €30 billion per year.* Redundant licensing wastes a lot of money, while insufficient licensing can have legal consequences. It is easier to fall into the ‘licensing trap’ than you might think, e.g. when companies haphazardly use a mix of cloud-based and installed software.
