What is Software Asset Management (SAM)?

The solution for software management in organizations.

Software Asset Management (SAM) is the business strategy for reclaiming budget and maximizing savings by actively controlling and automating procurement, usage, and deployment of software licenses.

SAM is particularly important for big organizations because it primarily deals with the redistribution of software licenses. SAM assists in managing the legal risks associated with software ownership and expiration.

Because of the enormous financial and legal impact of software licenses, most organizations choose to involve SAM Experts to ensure their secure and optimized software portfolios.

How we help you

A proven approach. In all areas.

Our well-established Managed SAM Services combine organizational, technological, and contractual aspects in an integrated approach:

Benefit from the best licensing conditions.

From a contractual perspective, vendors claim that Online Services simplify licensing – we see the opposite. Hybrid licensing scenarios require even more in-depth licensing knowledge. With our Managed SAM Services, you can always rely on the Expert Knowledge of our highly skilled Licensing and SAM Consultants.

Make IT better.

We define Roles and Responsibilities to reduce your workload. We ensure that you have Policies and Procedures in place to manage your online services and software. In parallel, we check your Processes to uncover optimization potential and increase your efficiency.

Gain insights. Gain knowledge.

In Reporting we connect a vast collection of high-quality data and develop the reports for the respective target groups within your company. We provide you with reports, analyses, and in-depth recommendations. On top, we empower you to use the self-service functionalities. Through our powerful dashboards you get exactly the information you need.

Understand and control your environment.

Data collection is not only about software discovery and license management. With on-premises software, companies face a considerable risk of being under-licensed. With the introduction of online services and browser-based applications you need to control and monitor the actual usage to avoid over-licensing. An appropriate platform with a central database is essential.
