Unlicensed software is a multi-billion dollar problem for the software industry. Despite this, companies that take a pro-active approach to identify the users of their unlicensed software have a significant opportunity to recover revenues and add to their top-lines.

KPMG recently surveyed 31 software companies representing more than 50% of the total software industry revenue. Almost 90% say their software license compliance program is a source of revenue and nearly half of the participants said their compliance programs contribute 4% or more of their companies’ software revenues.

The companies that are able to identify misuse and take a strategic approach to revenue recovery have a significant advantage over their competitors.
