How do you Stack Up to your Peers in terms of Protecting Software Assets?


That’s what we intend to find out. This month, Iron Mountain’s Intellectual Property Management (IPM) group is teaming up with the International Association for Contract & Commercial Management (IACCM) to survey the organization’s members. IACCM’s nearly 40,000 members come from many industries and geographies, and include contract and commercial managers, negotiators, attorneys, and supply chain professionals.

As a leader in technology escrow, Iron Mountain wanted to benchmark what these professionals are doing to protect their software assets, and share that information so that everyone can benefit. Some of the questions we asked covered topics such as:

  • The number of software applications in use
  • How many of those are mission-critical
  • The perceived risk of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
  • If there is a formal risk mitigation process in place
  • The elements of that risk mitigation process
  • Use of technology escrow and verification services

Our goal is to analyze the survey results and compare them with industry data. We’ll give you the opportunity to see how you measure up to your peers and to industry best practices.

We’ll present this information in the May 24 webinar “What’s your Risk Profile for Software Assets?” Join us on the webinar: Register now.

Webinar registrants will also receive our new eBook, “A Technology Licensee’s Guide to Technology Escrow: A 7-Step Process to Achieve Best Practices.”

So, how do you stack up? Join us on May 24 to hear from me and IACCM CEO Tim Cummins – we’ll share the survey findings and established best practices to make your software safer.
