SEWG Software Entitlement Working Group


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.
