— cost control — reducing direct costs of software, related assets, as well as ongoing support costs and contracts,
— governance — with trustworthy data on the state of the enterprise software estate and the capability to model accurate scenarios of impact of changes, better business decisions can be made and an advantageous position achieved in any vendor negotiations.
