Software Asset Management

Consulting for Effective License Administration and Management

Software Asset Management (SAM)
Software asset management (SAM) is the administration of software licenses. Software is acquired by every company and this is associated with licensing obligations. Control over the investments in software and licenses is crucial. Ideally, this is handled by an efficient process, along with experts who can advise you.

Software asset management serves to control and optimize your company's IT portfolio. The processes and methods are tailored to make the regular reconciliation of the existing software portfolio and actual installations as straightforward as possible, taking into account the dynamic nature of an IT infrastructure.

After all, under-licensing is expensive and bears high liability risks. Any use of software without a license and the approval of the originator may be illegal and criminal charges can ultimately be laid. We will help you make sure this is never a concern for your company.

First, we take an inventory of your software and the licenses you have already acquired. We obtain an overview of the software used in your company and the documentation you have for each software product.
