  • Hight benefit-low cost principle on software selection strategy
  • Retiring inventory when management costs exceed benefits
  • Obtaining necessary information for licencing that matches organisational policies and contract renewals
Challenges In Inventory Management

  • It is not possible to know hardware/software inventory changes.
  • Unused/idle inventory cannot be identified.
  • Software license usage cannot be measured.
Risks of Manual Inventory Management
  • Untracked software uploads cause unpredictable software budgets.
  • Causes security vulnerabilities.
  • Managing software updates becomes complicated.
  • Compliance standarts such as KVKK/GDPR and ISO 27001 are harder to implement.
  • Increases IT management costs.
  • Causes slowdowns and bottlenecks at IT environments.
