You’re throwing money away: the importance of managing software

Software is an essential part of any business today. However, software can also be complex and expensive to develop and maintain. That is why it is incredibly important for companies to manage their software as part of their bill of materials.

From R&D to production

Organizing software in a consistent and structured way, similar to how other parts of a system are organized, can help your organisation reach your KPI’s.

The SDLC is a structured process that helps companies develop and deploy high-quality products on time and within budget. Creating a structured process to handover software to production, is an element within that development life cycle that is often forgotten, until it’s too late. By adding software to your bill of materials, it becomes a manageable component.
