On the Digital Landfill blog, David Seuss of Northern Light discusses 8 risks of managing licensed content across an larger enterprise organisation.   The risks are:

  4. Financial exposure related to unauthorised access
  5. Lack of advanced search tools
  6. Not being able to find internal experts and collaboration partners
  7. Failure to be notified about relevant content held in multiple repositories (alerts)
  8. Multiple purchases of the same content
