Software asset management(SAM)<br />Martin Jakubička<br />Faculty of Informatics Masaryk University<br />Institute of Computer Science<br />Czech republic<br />
Introduction<br />SAM represents an important part of software maintenance and inevitable part of organization’s AM<br />Brings many serious aspects and issues not seen in other domains of AM<br />It constitute complex, nontrivial problem (demanding deep understanding, broad overview in many areas: law, management, economy,…)<br />
Why own solution? <br />There is not methodology of deploying such complex system in this environment (university)<br />It follows, there is not any suitable SAM system (thought tool) for license managing there<br />Most of the commercial tools are made as desktop application (only for main manager) students/employees IS <br />
Main goals<br />Creating of methodology for SAM deployment and management in large organizations of university type:<br />Develop policy<br />Establish registration procedures<br />Establish education program<br />Periodic audit<br />Analysis, design and implementation of SAM system which will be able to satisfy this methodology<br />
Differences<br />Differences between this environment and other companies – policy<br />Many computers (40+ k students, nearly 4000 employees) – offices, study rooms, laptops, servers,…<br />Researchers often need to install some sophisticated software themselves (rights) <br />Academicians refuse to scan their computers<br />
Expected results<br />Deploying of SAM system to Institute of Computer Science (in progress) and some faculties of Masaryk university<br />If it will be accepted it is offered to other universities to use<br />
Thanks for your attention.<br />Questions?<br />
My question(s)<br />Do you think the university degree can evoke some troubles in the private sector?<br />How to make foreign conferences more interesting/attractive for PhD students?<br />
