IT Software Installation Policy

Members of the Emerson community should request IT to install software you need on any computer they use for Emerson work. Emerson IT maintains licenses for a number of popular software packages and can provide certain pieces of software free-of-charge. Software that is needed for Emerson-related business but not offered by Emerson IT can be purchased by departments. Quotes can be obtained through the IT Help Desk.

Anyone wanting to install software on a computer on the Emerson network must request permission to do so through IT, but IT may grant particular users authority to install specific non-standard software on computers they use for Emerson business that is related and appropriate to their job function. Emerson IT maintains administrative control over each computer and reserves the right to remove non-standard software if it is deemed to be conflicting with standard functions of the computer.

Requests for administrative privileges may be made at any time, and will be evaluated on an individual basis.
