This practice guide does not provide in depth vendor specific topics, but instead provides recommendations that apply to any software vendor and should be considered general best practices. The SLO Practice Guide follows a milestone approach based on increased levels of maturity which result from additional data, compliance improvements and fast iterations. This practice guide is supplemented by specialty practice guides (such as the Oracle Practice Guide, IBM Practice Guide, Microsoft Practice Guide, SAP Practice Guide or VMWare Practice Guide) that provide additional vendor specific or use-case specific context, and the more technical Business Adapter Practice Guide. For concurrent licensing we recommend reading the Concurrent Licensing Practice Guide. For hardware asset management, we recommend the Hardware Asset Management Practice Guide. YES, IT CAN BE THIS SIMPLE!
