Ely, England, August 2011 – The advent of ISO/IEC 19770 is a leap forward for all who have an interest in the software life cycle, from designer to consumer. In five parts, three of which are still under development, the Standard defines best practice for all aspects of software asset management and introduces SWID (software identification) tags and SWEID (software licensing entitlement) tags.
The latest book to be added to the ITGP portfolio, Software Life Cycle Management Standards: Real-world scenarios and solutions for savings is an informative guide that describes the ISO/IEC 19770 Standard and its applicability to the entire software lifecycle, not just merely focusing upon the Software Asset Management (SAM) aspects of the lifecycle. It will guide Software Publishers along the implementation path, showing them the route to financial rewards, whilst at the same time, showing Enterprise Software Consumers the route to savings.
Software Life Cycle Management Standards: Real-world scenarios and solutions for savings, will help readers apply ISO/IEC 19770 to their business and enjoy the rewards it offers. The author David Wright calls on his vast experience to provide up-to-date information using practical examples, clear diagrams and entertaining anecdotes.
Antonio Velasco, CEO of Sinersys Technologies comments, “… This book has a practical approach with samples and references especially useful for managers and technicians involved in the Software Asset Management and the entire Software Life Cycle”.
Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, adds, “This book does a fine job of showing the reader how the standard can help fine-tune their processes and help them understand the "true business value" of their software investment. It’s a great addition to our portfolio and I’m sure it will help readers reach solutions and achieve savings.“
