Think of the Department of Commerce as a series of 12 bureaus formed over five decades with IT departments that are accustomed to running their own affairs.

Given that level of complexity, it’s understandable that while the agency has deployed software asset management, there’s still a great deal of work ahead.

CIO Steve Cooper says Commerce has gained valuable insight into its software assets through enterprise license agreements, tools such as IBM BigFix and through the Department of Homeland Security’s Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation security reports.

“I believe the real benefit received through these tools is the centralized reporting and identification of all software assets in the agency’s current operating environment, and knowing whether or not the agency is in compliance with licensing and regulations,” Cooper says.
