Software Licensing Management

What tools are available to make sure our software licensing agreements are met and what is the best way to manage this?  My organization is about 500 users.

Hi,
I believe you may want to consider IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager
http://www-01.ibm.com/software/tivoli/solutions/endpoint/index.html

it is a suite of products (Previous BigFix Technology) for managing endpoints. It works really well.
As per your software license requirements, you may want to have a look at the specific module: Tivoli Endpoint Manager for Software Use Analysis
http://www-01.ibm.com/software/tivoli/products/endpoint-software-use-analysis/

it has a great functionality that lets you monitor how the software licenses that have been bought are effectively used: i.e. you might buy 500 office 2010 professional licences and find out, after analisys that 400 out of 500 users are just using Word and Excel, and you may downgrade their license.

hope this helps
