Rightsize Your Licensing to Reduce Spend and Maintain Compliance

Know How to Purchase Software Effectively and
Manage Licensing Efficiently

Software licensing is constantly changing. Publishers continually create new ways to sell their software,
which invariably makes it more difficult to manage entitlements. Without a well-developed software
asset management (SAM) program, consumers can find themselves riddled with compounding shelf-
ware costs and large compliance penalty fees for license over-deployment.

Building a Holistic SAM Program

SAM is more than having a tool. Without skilled resources, governance, process, and proper
tool configuration, the program inevitably falls short. In such situations, the SAM tool can leave
an organization exposed to audit risk when auditors harvest SAM tool data to create
compliance findings.
