An independent review of your software compliance
The FAST Gap Analysis has helped us to
identify our current position. We have been able to prioritise and
concentrate on getting our main software sorted out first, and then
we subsequently worked on the rest. This enabled us to deal with
our greatest risk exposure first.
FAST Gap Analysis is an essential tool for any organisation
embarking on a software compliance or asset management project.
Taken as an online self-assessment or conducted by your FAST
Account Manager, it provides an independent review to assess your
compliance both at the beginning of your compliance project and at
subsequent key stages. These reviews are an exclusive
advantage of undertaking the FAST Compliance Programme.
FAST Gap Analysis provides
- An independent review of your software
- A report on your exposure to risk and
vulnerability around software compliance
- An outline software compliance project
- A readiness report against the FAST Standard
for Software Compliance
How it works
The greatest benefit of the programme has been
the FAST project plan; it gives our management team, who aren’t
necessarily into IT, a focus to work with.

By mapping your status against the FAST methodology, you can
track your progress towards achieving compliance and identify and
prioritise key areas of risk relating to software that need to be
addressed. FAST Gap Analysis reports provide project plans specific
to your organisation.
The wide-ranging analysis reviews many key areas including: IT
policies and procedures, software procurement, storage and control,
hardware and software disposal, software audit and reconciliation
Depending on what level of the FAST
Compliance Programme you select, the Gap Analysis can be taken
in two ways:
Online self-assessment - using our online tool
you can input the relevant data regarding your software management
practices and the system produces a compliance report.
FAST Account Manager led - a FAST advisor will
come on site and conduct the Gap Analysis for you. The results will
be reported back to you via a presentation.
