NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to software licenses and the juggling act enterprise IT departments have to perform to stay within compliance with vendors, the pressure is mounting.

Software audits are on the rise. In fact, about 37 percent of respondents to a recent InformationWeek survey reported that they have been audited by one software vendor within the last two years. So how can IT managers and CIOs keep up with the often confusing agreements that come with software licenses?

Join InformationWeek executive editor Doug Henschen and Amy Mizoras Konary, a research vice president with IDC, as they discuss how to avoid the pitfalls of software license failures during this week's InformationWeek radio broadcast, which takes place Tuesday, August 5, at 2:00 p.m. EDT (11:00 a.m. PDT).

Henschen has written extensively about issues related to software licensing and compliance, including a recent post on InformationWeek that found software vendors estimate that 80 percent of their own customers are not in compliance when it comes to software licensing.

Konary is an expert on software licensing, pricing, and delivery research, and she'll discuss how to take advantage of vendors' discounts and how to get more out of the company's software budget.
