In May 2007, Micro Focus commissioned KPMG to find how many UK quoted companies recorded the value of their information technology (IT) assets in their annual reports and accounts. KPMG discovered that the majority of companies failed to record the value of these assets. This discovery prompted a wider research project with INSEAD to explore possible approaches to measure the financial value of software assets effectively in terms of their contribution to the overall valuation of a business. At the height of the private equity boom in 2007, many quoted companies had begun to re-assess the value of assets such as property and brands. Yet many of these organisations had neglected
to account for the substantial value of their core software assets – despite a consistently high level of IT spend on them each year over many years.
