It happens often:
Yet the audit report is shocking.
And it leaves you wondering, why?
Here's what you can do to prevent that.
Is your entire IT covered by the tool?
If you only have inventory of virtual machines but no related data from hosts and clusters, the data is useless for compliance calculations.
Tools are rarely capable of automatic discovery of virtualised infrastructure.
Out-of-the-box software catalogue may not “know” that you acquired your licences in bundles. Ifso, compliance calculations will be incorrect.
IBM software may be the most frequent but not the only example.
Ifyour license says “per user” but the tool reports software per device, how can you calculate compliance?
It’s not unusual to have duplicates or incorrect data in the tool. The reasons may be:
-Multiple data sources, -Multiple discovery methods, -Quality of data from third party tools -Manually maintained CMDBs
Sometimes the tool just doesn’t know how to calculate compliance position (ELP).
Even worse,it may simply be incorrect.
Oracle customers are the most frequent victims of tools’ shortcomings. But it may happen to any other vendor’s software.
