Framingham, MA – May 16, 2011 – iET Solutions, a leading global supplier of IT Service Management and Software Asset Management solutions, today announced that iET License Entitlement Center was awarded “Best New Solution” in the latest report, EMA Radar™ for Software Asset Management (SAM).  Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) developed the EMA Radar™ for Software Asset Management (SAM) to help buyers in evaluating solutions to assist with the management of software assets—a large percentage of most corporate IT budgets. While the EMA Radar Report for SAM researched and highlighted the top twelve vendors in the SAM industry, iET License Entitlement Center was credited with being a Strong Value and the Best New Solution on the market.

"EMA was pleased to award iET License Entitlement Center the Best New Solution award for its Software Asset Management product. iET Solutions clearly distinguished itself as above average in terms of functionality, cost advantage, deployment and administration, as well as architecture and integration,” stated Charles T. Betz, Research Director at Enterprise Management Associates. “This is a very well-rounded solution, especially considering its relative newness to the market, and is without question a strong choice for medium to large companies."

iET License Entitlement Center is a Web-based strategic solution for SAM that inherently understands, tracks and reports on the enterprise’s license entitlements. Organizations gain real-time access into their global software asset management inventory, in-depth contract monitoring capabilities and the ability to mitigate audit risks through license compliance.

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) is a leading industry analyst and consulting firm that specializes in going “beyond the surface” to provide deep insight across the full spectrum of IT and data management technologies. As in all EMA Radar Reports™, EMA evaluated the solutions involved based on five key areas: Deployment & Administration, Cost Advantage, Architecture and Integration, Functionality and Vendor Strength.
