The right SAM strategy makes all the difference.
Our software asset management (SAM) experts can help you create, execute, and manage a comprehensive SAM strategy designed specifically for the needs of your organization.
The right SAM strategy won’t just save you money—it will help with software rollouts, licensing issues, compliance, and risk mitigation, too. We’ll make sure your SAM strategy is always working to your advantage, and is aligned with your goals.
SAM Assessment/Health Check
We assess your software asset management maturity level to help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your current software asset management program. We provide recommendations to improve your processes, SAM technology capabilities, and responsibility and accountability of people.
Tool Assessment/Health Check
We will inventory the current tools you use for software discovery and financial management. The outcome of this assessment is a findings report that documents existing tools mapped to current SAM requirements, a gap analysis of current state and improved “best practices” stated with formal recommendations for tool selections, configuration and integration changes.
SAM Tool Implementation
To get the maximum value from your IT investments, SAM tool implementation is usually necessary. We implement tools like ILMT, Flexera and BigFix Inventory, which can help you manage changes to your IT infrastructure, as well as reduce your compliance and security risks.
We ensure that the discovered collected data has been normalized to provide accurate reporting for software vendor reporting requirements.
Software License Baseline
We gather all software license information and perform reconciliation against collected inventory (tool automated or manual collection) to produce a trusted license position for you.
Software Lifecycle Management
Software is always being upgraded, so it’s important to plan for the lifecycle of these products. We’ll help you manage your software from the initial phases through retirement, and we’ll make sure you’re always up to date with the latest and greatest applications.
We will perform analysis for potential software cost reductions by analyzing for hardware reconfigurations looking at alternate licensing models for deploying your software licenses.
Organizations are adopting SaaS subscriptions and cloud apps faster than ever, but oftentimes don’t understand what they pay for and use. We provide visibility and control when it comes to cloud optimization, giving insight into one of your biggest investments.
SAM Managed Services
For companies that don’t have the capacity to take care of SAM services in house—or who want to use their resources elsewhere—we offer fully integrated managed services to cover all of your SAM needs.
