Organizations such as TagVault.org bring software vendors, IT inventory tool providers, and software procurement teams together to help define the certification requirements.
“Tool providers such as iQuate are critical to the success of tag use in the customer environment,”
Both Steve Klos and iQuate’s founder Jason Keogh are members of the ISO/IEC Working Group responsible for the 19770 “SAM” family of standards. ISO/IEC 19770-2:2009 defines the data standard for Software ID (SWID) tags.
“Many IT departments are struggling to accurately understand what software is running on which machines within their IT environments,”
iQuate helps customers reduce IT spend and improve IT compliance by gathering and analyzing information on software and hardware configurations in highly complex physical, virtual and cloud environments. iQuate works closely with customers, consultancy partners and major vendors such as Microsoft, Vmware, Oracle and IBM to ensure the inventory and measurement data provided is as complete and accurate as possible, and is acceptable to the software vendors.
Headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, iQuate also operates from local offices in Paris, France; Sydney, Australia; and San Francisco, US.
