Malaysian companies must conduct annual software audits: MDTCC, BSA

AvantiKumar | May 19, 2011
Malaysian ministry and Business Software Alliance push for software asset management to become part of annual audit requirements.

"Software audits are part of good Software Asset Management (SAM), a business practice designed to reduce IT costs, limit risks related to the ownership and use of software, and increase corporate-wide and IT efficiencies for a company," said consulting firm KPMG Business Advisory Partner in Charge, IT Advisory, Paul Bahnisch. 

"When it is effectively deployed, SAM can help companies improve control of their IT footprint, make better purchasing decisions, enhance visibility of their actual software needs, improve licensing compliance and enhance risk management and governance," said Bahnisch. "We see increasing instances in several countries where software audits are being made mandatory as part of their annual financial reporting, and we believe there are benefits for doing so, especially here in Malaysia."
