Software Recognition Service

Our Software Recognition Service deciphers your data to build a meaningful software list, enabling you to remain compliant, optimise spend, and free up time and resources for business-critical tasks.

To get the most value from the data held in your software asset management (SAM) tool, you need to simplify your data usage and organise it to make it more beneficial to you. Only then can you fully optimise your software usage, ensure compliance, and minimise future spend.

The challenge SAM managers face when optimising their data is making sense of the lists of raw file data gathered from multiple inventory tools, gaining a single version of the truth for what is installed across your estate, and whether it is licencable or not. Our service understands your raw data and turns it into valuable information for your SAM managers.

How our Software Recognition Service works

Our Software Recognition Service gives your organisation power, visibility, and control over its data. Your software is categorised by our global team of License Dashboard data analysts, with unrecognised files and applications matched, normalised, and classified by our specialists. Our data analysts focus on the missing and unmatched signatures using our cognitive in-house data normalisation and recognition systems that update our master dictionaries daily with new applications.
