Audit & SAM Compliance: What do you do when licensing becomes a legal not a technology issue?

According to a recent market survey, only 11% of organizations are prepared to correctly handle an LCC Audit or SAM request. Your IT team or procurement specialists should not handle software audits. An audit is a legal proceeding and should be treated as such. Not knowing what to say and what should remain unsaid, underestimating the complexity of licensing metrics and contracts and not effectively coordinating resources can result in significant yet avoidable impact to the organization.
