Karnataka taps BSA to beef up software management in government

The Center of E-Governance of the Karnataka Government, has joined hands with the India operation of the Business Software Alliance (BSA) to bring the benefits of Software Asset Management (SAM) to state-based Public Sector Undertakings and government departments.

The  two entities announced  the joint programme in what was coincidentally,  Intellectual Property Week. 

SAM, an ISO ( 2006) standard, enables companies and organizations to efficiently and effectively manage and track their software licenses as valuable company assets throughout its life cycle of procurement, deployment, usage, maintenance and retirement, enabling cost savings, risk management and operational efficiencies. Karnatka has already engaged with BSA to introduce SAM to small and medium enterprises in the state and the new partnership will help spread the culture within public undertakings engaged in key sectors including transport and energy, explains D.S. Ravindran, CEO of Karnataka government’s Centre for e-Governance. The state has been judged  number one in e-readiness among all Indian states and its total annual spending on IT is around Rs 3 billion, Dr Ravindran added.

Keshav S. Dhakad, Chair of the BSA India Committee said, at the media event to announce the partnership: “With the understanding and adoption of ISO recognized SAM, national and state resources can improve their data security processes, system stability, optimize costs and fulfil compliance obligations which are all critical factors in ensuring the health and safety of Karnataka’s valued Public Sector Enterprises.”

Lizum Mishra, BSA’s India Director added that Maharashtra was the other state that had implemented SAM with BSA support, across its government institutions.
