centralising liscence management
Posted on 2014-02-04
if you work in larger organisations with a larger ict infrastructure, hosting endless databases and applications, is it common to store all liscence evidence with a central team, or is ownership of the liscences per area of the business, i.e. whoever owns this database or this application keeps hold of the liscences for that given area. Are there any risks associated with not centrally storing/managing the liscences, and letting teams hold on to their own? it seems an issue but I am struggling to justify why.. posted in the database sections section as these are the apps under scrutiny in our organisation. I dont work in ICT I work in risk so getting an insight into how you do things elsewhere would be very useful..
