What is License Management?

License management, also known as license administration, is the monitoring of software and cloud licenses to ensure compliance with license agreements.

Every company uses software solutions that come with specific license conditions. It is important to keep track of these licenses. Having specialized tools for this can be helpful. License management software serves as a central platform for license management. It manages license inventories effectively, avoids over- and under-licensing, and thus optimizes your expenses.
