Get Ready to Tackle the Next Software Audit

Software audits can feel like a chore. Avoid common mistakes that inevitably lead to a software audit disaster.


There`s a good Chance that Your Organization will be Next

According to Gartner, there is a 60% or greater chance that organizations will be audited by at least one software vendor in any given year. IBM, Oracle, Adobe, Microsoft, and SAP are most likely to audit their customers. Most companies utilize the software of at least three of these vendors, which can result in up to three audits per year, leaving companies with hefty bills for true-ups or penalties.
