    The education sector is beset with onerous business risks from unlicensed software and copyright protection. It also has a budgetary mandate to reduce expense and maximise value. Implementing Software Asset Management (SAM) processes and policies enables schools and colleges to mitigate these risks and ensure software licenses are fully exploited before new ones are obtained. ISO/IEC-19770-1 was released in May 2006 as a global standard for Software Asset Management.
