SAM Project

Your starting shot for optimum license management

Software Asset Management (SAM) Projekte / Projects
In some respects the SAM project is the classic among the software asset management services offered by the Sycor Group. On the one hand it serves to take an inventory of the licenses in the company and, on the other hand, to substantiate this inventory with the verifiable SAM optimization model. The latter ensures that there are processes in IT that correspond to the software asset management concept and guarantee a form of quality assurance.

Our experienced SAM experts are by your side throughout your SAM project, from the initial workshop to the final meeting. In categorizing the SAM optimization potential, our specialists identify valuable opportunities and provide you with recommendations for future licensing.

The costs of an SAM project are usually amortized within one year. Often this already happens by the end of the project, when the established licensing needs can be covered at optimized cost by comparing the available licensing models and through optional contract negotiations.

SAM Project Process:

Kick-off workshop

Defining the objectives for the SAM project, establishing the content and scope.


Current usage data such as installed software, purchased licenses and existing licensing agreements and certificates are collected and analyzed. The current licensing situation and procurement methods can be clarified on this basis.

Process optimization

Based on the data analysis, the forms of licensing are optimized and additional licenses are purchased as needed. As a result of the project, SAM processes are defined to document procurement and delivery methods among other things.

Final workshop & SAM certificate

The SAM project is concluded with documented proof of compliance with licensing terms and conditions. In the course of a Microsoft SAM project, it is possible to have the project certified. The Microsoft SAM certificate confirms proper licensing for the company and is valid for one year from the date of issue.

For peace of mind from a legal perspective and to ensure the best possible protection for license checks, the event technology company GAHRENS + BATTERMANN GmbH decided to initiate a SAM compliance project. The IT service provider Sycor IQ Solutions took over the project and identified new options for its licensing.
