To bring the detailed information about these programs, Mr. David Strickrodt, Practice Lead of SAM, Softline presented about SAM – Software Asset Management and shared how SAM allows your businesses to have the enterprise–wide transparency, uncover licensing risks and optimize your IT expenses and how Softline services can support your digital transformation journey.
Software Asset Management (SAM) is a business practice that involves managing and optimizing the purchase, deployment, maintenance, utilization, and disposal of software applications within an organization.
According to Gartner – the leading provider of market research and analysis, specializing in IT developments, SAM tools automate many of the tasks required to maintain compliance with software licenses, thereby controlling software spending. They facilitate the in-depth analysis of software assets by decoding software license entitlements, automating the collection of software consumption data, establishing independent software vendors (ISV), effective licenses (ELP), and optimizing software value delivery and information sharing.
