Investigating a fundamental flaw in software ID tags

ISO19770-2, the International Standard for Software ID Tags (SWID tags) has been out for a while now, and ‘in theory’ has the support of influential vendors such as Adobe, one of the earliest adopters of the standard. When fully implemented by software vendors, this standard has the potential to make software identification easier, automated and more understandable.

However sadly the practice has not lived up to the ideal!

Mark LillywhiteIn this session, Mark Lillywhite, Senior Presales consultant from Snow Software, will discuss the need for a standard way of identifying software that all vendors agree to. If that is ISO 19770-2 then fantastic – but the vendors need to ensure that they all provide SWID tags and that they are unique to each application – currently not the case.
