Working Group Description
The emergence of cloud computing along with virtualization adds additional complexity to software license management for platform vendors, application providers and their customers. The efforts of the DMTF’s Software Entitlement Working Group allow the industry to better manage licensed software products and product usage.
Focusing on the interoperability with which software inventory and product usage are expressed, the DMTF’s Software Entitlement work is part of its Cloud Management Initiative.
- DMTF members are encouraged to contribute and access the work of the Software Entitlement Working Group via its private, members-only workspace. Non-members, learn more and join the DMTF to participate.
