Container technology allows organisations to create competitive business solutions and digital services. For IT Asset Managers however, the use of container technology involves many licensing challenges varying from knowing where containers reside to knowing exactly which commercial software is being contained. The Docker Desktop licensing changes add yet another challenge. After January 31st you require a subscription for every Docker Desktop instance or alternatively will have to move to an alternative solution.
