Quantify and mitigate your software compliance risk with BLC's Internal Software Audit service

Internal software audits are important for any business and will help you stay ahead of software compliance concerns. Yes, an audit is a lot of work - but we do all of the heavy lifting for you. And, at the end of the audit you will be able to reduce financial risk empowered by knowing your Enterprise License Position.

Why you should know your Enterprise License Position

Software vendors look for reasons to demand an audit of your environment. Audits boost vendor revenue and expedite agreements that promote new product adoption. When a business has command of their license position the vendor has less interest in spending time and money on a forced audit.

Vendors use expensive auditors like KPMG and Deloitte. An audit conducted on a client who has a well documented Enterprise License Position would not produce the revenue goals that make the vendor investment worthwhile.

Why you need an Internal Software Audit

80% of vendor audits find compliance issues that result in financial penalties. BLC has found that accidental deployments, virtualization, hardware changes, and other day-to-day activities result in extensive licensing issues with material budget impact.

These issues can go unnoticed for months or even years. An internal software audit identifies issues and offers mitigation plans that minimize financial exposure.

How to conduct an internal audit

BLC’s highly experienced and industry-focused Internal Software Audit (ISA) professionals use data science to deliver analytics that drive action. These actions result in operational efficiencies and reduce financial waste, creating bottom line value.
