ISO 19770 - Software Asset Management     Print

ISO/IEC 19770 is an international standard about Software Asset Management (SAM), which is a business practice that involves managing and optimizing the purchase, deployment, maintenance, utilization, and disposal of software applications within an organization.

The standard consists of three parts.

  1. ISO/IEC 19770-1 is a process framework to enable an organization to prove that it is performing software asset management to a standard sufficient to satisfy corporate governance requirements and ensure effective support for IT service management overall.
  2. ISO/IEC 19770-2 provides a software asset management (SAM) data standard for software identification tags. Software ID tags provide authoritative identifying information for installed software or other licensable item (such as fonts, or copyrighted papers).
  3. ISO/IEC 19770-3 will provide a software asset management (SAM) data standard for software licensing entitlement tags. Software entitlement tags are computer files that provide authoritative identifying information about software licensing rights.
