There are many steps to retiring IT assets, which are necessary to ensure a smooth, secure transition. Data security is arguably the most important step, making sure no data leaks are possible even after disposition. Data erasure consists of a complete wipe of all data from a device before data erasure is license retirement. I
When IT assets are retired, so too are software licenses. License termination occurs during the audit process before the licenses are rolled over to new devices and before data erasure. The retirement process consists of a software system phaseout, aiming to end the existence of a software system entirely. The software is removed from regular usage, and any leftover relevant parts are migrated to another system.
License retirement offers several benefits to an enterprise, such as cost reduction and the elimination of any outdated information. Retiring a software license eliminates recurring license costs, maintenance, and administration costs. Additionally, an enterprise undergoes many changes the longer it is operational, and information can become outdated over time. Retiring a software license enables companies to upgrade to more efficient software and update enterprise data.
