    • Supervise the organization's response to software vendor license compliance audits or license validation requests, in consultation with the relevant vendor and procurement managers, software asset manager and other appointed delegates.
    • Ensure that appropriate resources (people, tools, services) and processes are in place to gather and analyze data relating to digital technology asset life cycles and related processes.
    • Report on (or develop reporting on) remediation of digital technology asset-related risks and progress of optimization activity.
    • Ensure accurate and timely reporting, and that data completeness and quality issues are quickly identified and escalated to the responsible data or process owners.
    • Gather data on and provide analysis of all activities that have an impact on the value, cost and risk of digital technology asset life cycles including the interpretation of software license agreements and identifying rules, obligations, and product metrics to ensure compliance and usage
    • Provide finance with the data to support the analysis of digital technology asset project and maintenance budgets and business cases.
    • Ensure that TAM-related tools and services are properly evaluated, selected, implemented, configured and maintained, with appropriate integration with other sources of organizational data.
