License Dashboard secures KPMG verification

04 September 2012  |  1249 views  |  0 Source: License Dashboard

License Dashboard, the leading developer of advanced license management solutions, today announced that its flagship software asset management (SAM) solution, License Manager, has become the first tool of its kind to be independently assessed and verified by KPMG, the global professional services firm and software compliance auditor.

As a globally-recognised leader in SAM consultancy, KPMG launched the SAM Tool Assessment service as a means to give organisations confidence that approved SAM Tools had been rigorously tested and had the manufacturer's claims fully tested. The assessment was carried out by KPMG's software compliance team in Cologne, Germany, over a period of three days. Tests included areas such as software recognition, the ability to manage different license types, automatic population of licenses from sources such as a Microsoft Licensing Statement (MLS) and the solution's reporting functionality and ability to create an Effective Licensing Position (ELP).

Having successfully passed the SAM Tool Assessment, KPMG confirms that License Dashboard License Manager provides the necessary features, functionalities and software catalog (license dictionary) to support software license compliance. License Manager is the first solution to gain KPMG's SAM Tool Assessment accreditation, marking it out as a leading SAM tool. The accolade comes just days after License Manager was positively reviewed by The ITAM Review for its "ability to provide a workbench for a number of sources, the transparency of the recognition process and the intelligence it adds to the license import process."

"As the first software asset management solution to be independently verified by KPMG, customers can be assured that License Manager is a quality solution," comments Sean Robinson, director at License Dashboard. "As opposed to other tools in the marketplace that evolved from asset repositories, License Manager was designed from the ground up by software licensing experts for the sole purpose of software asset management. This foundation, combined with significant product development and investment, continues to give License Manager the edge."
