“Software Sense was formed to help enterprise software customers even the balance of power with the major vendors….”
The principals who founded Software Sense understand this asymmetry in information because they built their careers negotiating large software contracts for the major vendors. They recognised that the imbalance of power means that many customers pay too much for the software they need, buy software they don’t need and agree to contract and audit terms that expose them to unnecessary risks. And, at the end of it all, they are left exposed to punitive audits by deploying software without fully understanding the fine print of licensing terms that seem to change with every version of every product.
