ISO 19770-1 PDF

It is WG21 that is responsible for developing, improving and ensuring market needs are met when developing these standards. The objective of the standard is to give organizations of all sizes information and assistance to assist at the risk and cost minimization of ITAM assets. Through implementation, these same organizations will acquire a competitive advantage through:. There are a number of characteristics of IT assets which create additional or more detailed requirements. As a result of these characteristics of IT assets, the management system for IT assets has explicit additional requirements dealing with:.

The standard also advocates a tier-based approach to allow organizations to adopt ITAM processes that are suitable to the needs and size of the organization. Effective IT Asset Management enables every organization to reduce its risk associated with the over or under buying of software assets both executable and non-executable , but also works to ensure the security of those assets through effective tracking and support of the asset throughout the entire software and IT lifecycle.

The standard is also sufficiently broad enough for it to be applied in a variety of technological environments, including cloud-based computing. Organizations rely on software and other IT assets to effectively run their business.

They rely on technology to communicate with customers and partners, to track their business plans and finances and remain competitive with their peers.

Given this heavy reliance, and fact that software is licensed and not sold, it is important to organizations to properly manage those assets strategically while ensuring installation and use of those licenses are legal.

The need to be legal is particularly important given that software vendors are known to regularly audit their customers to ensure compliance with applicable terms of the license contract. The manual component is labor intensive and cannot scale to support modern distributed enterprises. However, by providing a common standard to which all organizations can conform,even if the management of licenses can be labor intensive, organizations can benefit from processes such as the recycling of existing licenses within an organization, thus saving organizations money.

The benefits to end-user organizations are numerous. Each approach is unique and employs its terminology. While this approach may foster innovation, it also results in a software consumer being required to deal with each of those vendors on a separate basis, which leads to significant inefficiencies and prevents easy comparisons. Adopting can go some way to limiting these inefficiencies and allowing comparisons due to an internationally-recognized framework for adopting and implementing ITAM.

But the standard simultaneously allows organizations to adopt a flexible applied to ITAM through its tier-based approach. It is useful for every organization looking to ensure maximum value from IT assets while reducing a variety of IT-related risk, including security-related risks. Having a standardized approach also allows for certification which will be useful for ensuring partners and potential partners have these processes in place — reducing your risk.

Similar to end-user organizations, the process framework allows those implementing SAM SAM practitioners a common, globally accepted, approach to effective software asset management.

The availability of training and certification schemes based on enables both individuals and organizations to gain knowledge of based SAM and have their level of knowledge evaluated. Some of these schemes have been in operation for several years.

Current examples are:. Benefits Organizations rely on software and other IT assets to effectively run their business.

SAM practitioners Similar to end-user organizations, the process framework allows those implementing SAM SAM practitioners a common, globally accepted, approach to effective software asset management.

ISO 19770-1 has had a makeover, but has anyone noticed?

Software Asset Management and Software License Compliance are often confused in many organizations, with neither given adequate attention. Accurate software asset identification, which is vital to both overall SAM and compliance, is such a challenge that it acts as a disincentive to effort. Further, many of the software inventory tools in the market today are only partially successful with software identification reporting — application suites being a particular problem. As a result, many organizations simply accept the risks of non-compliance on the one hand and the costs of over-provisioning on the other. Included here is the need to quantify the value of software owned by the organization. In turn, this creates an environment in which the whole management of software assets becomes more significant. The positives behind establishing SAM procedures are clear to anyone who looks for them.
