This whitepaper shows an example enterprise of 50,000 users. The sample is based on investment by removing and reusing unused software to address software asset management. Savings are based on company historical data from 1E’s benchmark database. A 3 year cash flow and ROI analysis was completed. Assumptions were made, about software, usage an pricing, but extreme measure was taken to make assumptions, both conservative and accurate.
The ROI approach reduces extensive reporting around software usage. In reclaiming the software, the 1E Business Analyst team are able to predict the savings the enterprise can expect.
