SIE Consulting Group’s Software License Management as a Service (SLMS) program was recognized by award-winning Mary Davie on Great Government Through Technology, a blog about the federal technology space.
Working with several agencies, GSA developed SLMS to help Agencies generate significant cost savings by:
- cutting unnecessary software license spending,
- implementing controls on the software license management lifecycle, and
- improving an agency’s cybersecurity posture by tracking and monitoring vulnerabilities.
SLMS uses subject-matter experts to engage agencies with one goal in mind: saving the government (and taxpayers!) money on software licensing. The program is the foundation for successfully managing software. It employs a phased approach to assess agency maturity relevant to IT Asset Management (ITAM), while establishing plans for implementing improvements.
Mary Davie is Assistant Commissioner for Office of Information Technology Category (ITC) in GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service (FAS). Mary serves as the government-wide IT Category Manager under the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB’s) category management initiative. She manages how the government improves its buying habits for almost $50 billion across six subcategories, including services, hardware, software, security, and telecommunications. The IT category is one of the largest among the 10 categories under the OMB program.
Mary is recipient of Federal Computer Week’s Fed 100 Award and 2016 Government Eagle Award for outstanding contributions to federal IT. She is also winner of the Presidential Rank Meritorious Executive Award and is a sought-after speaker on federal IT acquisition. FedTech recognized Mary’s “Great Government through Technology” blog as one of the 50 Must-Read Federal IT Blogs. In 2016, FedScoop called Mary one of “D.C.’s Top 50 Women in Technology” and GovLoop named her one of the top 10 Government Women to follow on Twitter (@marydavie).
