I say re-harvesting, you say recycling - potato, potato!
The important thing is that this process is run, and run often. The benefits of running this process are:
- It reduces the size of your SAM scope (if software isn't installed, you don't have to account for it)
- Re-stocks your licence pool
- Has the potential to close down security loop holes
- Lightens the load on patching and version control
