Microsoft has increased its focus on software licensing compliance, leading to an increase in the number of licensing audits being conducted. Microsoft randomly selects clients to be audited by a third party such as Deloitte, EY or KPMG. Microsoft has also implemented more robust audit programs to ensure that customers are using their software in compliance with licensing terms and conditions.
