Docio is proud to announce Patent Pending status for Software Business Management technologies

Software Business Management (SBM) Company Announces U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Issued “Patent Pending” Status for the SaaS-Based Software Governance Platform™

JACKSONVILLE, FL -- (April 26, 2017) - Docio® (, the pioneer and premier provider of SaaS-based Software Business Management (SBM) solutions for IT & Digital decision makers to lead the business, today announced they are the first and only patent-pending Business System of Record for technologies delivering Software Business Management (SBM) applications. Concentrated “Software Business Management” combines all three layers; System of Record, System of Engagement, and System of Intelligence in a convenient, standardized approach to helping companies make strategic decisions in scaling more effective and efficient software operations. At the same time, the Software Business Management (SBM) SaaS provides metrics and measurements that will be tracked to help SaaS companies and organizations focused on Digital Transformation manage growth, decrease costs, prevent business risks, enable agility, and ensure long-term sustainability.

While significant advancements and investments have been made in the Information Technology Asset Management (ITAM) and Information Technology Service Management (ITSM) industries, Docio is the first to apply Software Business Management (SBM), and specific big data and digital analytics, to improve the business of software and efficacy of product management, product development, and product delivery. This disruptive technology introduces a significant advancement in software product life cycle methodologies and enabling functions and practices imperative to building software value and helps meet the regulatory and compliance demands for product purity and reporting.

Docio's technologies enable organizations and companies who also have systems and solutions built without explicit organizational approval or software not installed by the information technology (IT) department. Typically, Shadow IT solutions do not align with an organization’s business goals and requirements for control, documentation, security, and reliability, creating risks and compliance issues down the line. Shadow IT also adds hidden and misallocated costs to organizations, create inconsistencies within programs and projects due to the lack of uniformity between programs, produce security vulnerabilities, and cause inefficiencies within a company. Enterprise IT expenditures continually move outside the direct control of IT departments. This results in a growing list of software to monitor, update, and maintain. If a company continues to decentralize and experiment with applications or programs to help them on a daily basis, it is only natural that many will fall by the wayside.
