Efficient Audit Defense: Optimizing IBM License Review for State Government.
The State faced an IBM Software License Review and sought comprehensive support due to ISAM's successful track record in audit defense. Initial assessment revealed incorrect data collection and reporting, disqualifying the State as a sub-capacity user. Further, growth and virtualization had not been correctly reviewed.
