How you do you all keep up to date with license/software versions in your environment?
How you do you all keep up to date with license/software versions in your environment? what are some best practices or recommendation you use to keep up to date and know when is time to upgrade? do vendors call and notify you when a license is up for an upgrade and end of life is near? do you recommend on implementing a quarterly review on licenses, so we can have a clear idea what is to come in the future and properly budget for it? We had a scenerio this quarter where our AS400 os ibm version 7vr1 was due for an upgrade, and it sneaked up on us and werent budgeted for it. I want to prevent that from happening again, and be more informed. Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated.
