Unpacking BYOL: Bring Your Own License

Did you know that BYOL stood for “Bring Your Own License?” It is a concept that is gaining popularity in the world of software asset management. 

What is BYOL?

Essentially, BYOL allows the use of existing software licenses for a product. That solution erases the need to buy new licenses for the same product.

But BYOL is not without its challenges. One of the biggest challenges is ensuring license compliance. Customers have more responsibility in this case. They must ensure they use the product according to the terms of their existing licenses. 

That can be challenging, as license terms can be complex and difficult to interpret. Also, customers must ensure they have the right to transfer their licenses. But before we dive too deep into BYOL, let’s first learn why tech execs love it so much.
