Flexera foresees a year of increased audits activity in 2021 for two reasons: The ongoing recession has caused flat or decreased sales in sales for some software companies, so those vendors are turning to audits to make up lost revenue; and consolidation in the software industry, with certain vendors being highly aggressive—even predatory—in their efforts to ensure license compliance and increase revenue.

The leading industry analysts agree that Flexera has powerful solutions that companies have been turning to for managing their IBM, Microsoft and Oracle estates.

Watch a video featuring Flexera’s Jim Ryan, President/CEO, and Conal Gallagher, CIO/CSO, as they discuss the audit outlook for 2021.
