ISO19770-1 ISO 19770-1 ISO/IEC 19770-1:2012 Software Asset Management Processes

Updated as of June 2012, the new International Standard for software asset management (SAM) is now available - ISO/IEC 19970-1:2012.

The standard establishes a structured baseline for organisations to implement an integrated set of processes for software asset management (SAM). These processes are divided into tiers which allow for incremental implementation, as well as assessment and recognition.

SAM is 'the business practice of managing and optimising the purchase, installation, utilisation, maintenance, and replacement of all software assets within an organisation. Organisations adopt SAM for several reasons, including avoiding legal problems, saving money and time, and reducing security risks.' (BSA definition)

The aim of the standard is to help you achieve good practice and manage your software more efficiently so that management and other organisations can be confident of the quality and adequacy of your processes.

What's new in ISO/IEC 19770-1:2012?

In ISO/IEC 19770-1:2012, four tiers have been added to the standard that the processes for effective SAM have been divided between. These enable you to take a incremental approach to SAM. With the implementation of the processes from each tier and conformance in line with the said tier, you improve the effectiveness of the SAM in your organisation.

Most of the processes and desired outcomes of each process are the same in the 2012 version of this standard as they were in the 2006 version.

Protect your organisation against software piracy

Use ISO/IEC 19770-1:2012 to protect your organisation from the costs and reputational damage of being accused of software piracy. Software piracy is 'the unauthorised copying or distribution of copyrighted software. This can be done by copying, downloading, sharing, selling, or installing multiple copies onto personal or work computers. What a lot of people don't realise or don't think about is that when you purchase software, you are actually purchasing a licence to use it, not the actual software. It is that licence that tells you how many times you can install the software, so it's important to read it. If you make more copies of the software than the licence permits, you are pirating.' (BSA guidance)

Key Features and Benefits:

Enables you to manage your software as a strategic asset of the business, maximising return on investment. Divided into four tiers that effectively let you break down implementation of the SAM processes, leading to easier and staged implementation of the core SAM guidance in this standard.
