ISO’s software standard

The organisation for international standardisation (ISO) has introduced a new standard for Software Asset Management (SAM). The ISO 19770-1 standard claims to process and enable organisations to benchmark their capability in delivering managed services to measure service levels and assess the software performance.

It promises to ensure ongoing compliance on the software asset management front as well as aid industry and vendors with software compliance. The standard is divided into two parts. Part one which talks about SAM is divided into six parts while part two aims at simplifying the software inventory process. The six parts include control environment, planning and implementation, inventory, verification and compliance, operations management and life cycle.
