Implementing License Tracking in K1000

01/25/2016 1238 views
Hello there,

So I'm currently in the process of setting up license tracking for my company in the K1000 and we're starting completely from scratch and was wondering if anyone here has done the same and has any advise. My team an I currently in the process of applying license and software assets to software found in the Software Catalog by means of order information we got from our vendors (i.e software title given from the vendor, PO#, Purchase date, order amount.). My biggest concern is applying the correct information to a piece of software in the software catalog because some of the names vendors gives are pretty vague.

Any advise or suggestions regarding this would be greatly appreciated. What I may may sound confusing and may require some answers from me, so please let me know.

Thanks ahead of time for the help.

There is no short cut to achieving license compliance unfortunately, creation of licenses and adding them to the Software catalog is the only way to get the data to look correct. When we undertake projects for customers in this area there is no escaping the amount of data prep that needs to be done to ensure that everything adds up.

Good luck
