BSA The Software Alliance, an organisation dedicated to promoting a safe and legal digital world, has announced that Delhi International Airport (P) Limited (DIAL) has become the first Public Private Partnership globally to be Certified in Standards-based SAM for Organization or CSS(O). It is the second Indian organisation after Symphony Services to achieve CSS(O) status. The certification was awarded by H.V. Raghuram, Managing Director, Karnataka Udyog Mitra, Department of Commerce and Industries, Government of Karnataka to Davesh Shukla, CIO & Vice President – IT, DIAL.

CSS(O) is the first and only enterprise-level certification for Software Asset Management (SAM) in the industry based on the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) SAM standard. CSS(O) was developed through a collaboration between BSA and leading Indian knowledge partners including KPMG and Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India Private Limited, and has been tested and proven through a local pilot program with Symphony Services in November 2011.

By being certified in Standards-based SAM, organisations will be able to better align their software assets with their operational needs, maintain and easily prove their license compliance, accrue software and network cost efficiencies, and improve their business performance. In addition, they will receive a two-year audit forbearance from major software publishers, which will help minimise their risk and improve business efficiencies.
