What is SAM?

Efficient license management by specialists

Software Asset Management (SAM)
SAM stands for software asset management – 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: software asset management (SAM).

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 even be illegal in case of doubt. Criminal charges can ultimately be laid as well. We help you make sure that this never happens in the first place.

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.

Thanks to our software asset management services, you can manage your software efficiently and with confidence that the legal standards are met.
