Axios Systems, a global provider of IT Service Management (ITSM) and IT Operations Management (ITOM) solutions, has added a software recognition dictionary to its assyst ITOM v5 offering, giving organizations full transparency on what is installed on their network.
The Software Dictionary, which was presented as part of the wider assyst ITOM v5 launch at the UK’s leading Service Desk and IT Professional event SITS19 this month, will significantly increase the number of known products and manufacturers of software within an organization’s inventory, enabling users to identify and reconcile what is installed on the entire network.
With thousands of new software products being released onto the market each year, it is difficult to identify unauthorized software or duplicate offerings. Inaccurate inventory data can increase the risk of non-compliance.
License compliance breaches revealed by software audits can result in significant fines, as well damage to an organization’s reputation. Effective Software Asset Management can mitigate these risks and even provide cost savings. Therefore, it is critical for organizations to know what they’ve got, where it’s installed, who’s using it, and just as importantly if you are paying for software which is not being used.
Key benefits of assyst ITOM new dictionary offering include:
- Optimize licenses and reduce overspending
- Improved reporting through standardized naming conventions
- Reduced costs and risks by identifying duplicate application offerings and unauthorized licenses.
The dictionary automatically classifies software into Manufacturer, Product Category and Product Type to ensure maximum ease of use for end-users. This automation also reduces the manual effort from support teams to identify and map applications, thus reducing unnecessary overheads.
Steve Spratt, Chief Operating Officer at Axios Systems said: “We’re delighted to be making the latest innovation to our assyst ITOM Suite available to customers. The Software Recognition Dictionary allows IT teams to completely transform the way the operate, with the full functionality set to deliver a number of financial and organizational benefits.”
