Cloud licensing and software asset mangement

Analysts have predicted that in the next two years, over half of a company's IT applications will be located in the cloud. This has significant implications for asset management professionals, because it means the level of complexity and array of software assets needing to be monitored and controlled will increase sharply. Many of the anticipated changes have occurred already and traditional WINTEL environments of the past have been replaced by heterogeneous platforms combining Linux, Mac, Windows, virtualization and now, software as a service (SaaS) applications.
