Establish an Efficient and Effective Software Asset Management Program

An Effective SAM Program
Drives Cost Efficiencies

A proper software asset management function relies
on an adept team of professionals that have
expertise in publisher licensing models, conducting
organizational audits for license compliance, and in-
depth knowledge on the functionality and limitations
of SAM tools. An effective SAM program will drive
organizational efficiencies, cost savings and
avoidance, and risk mitigation with your most
strategic software purchases.

Effective SAM Needs People, Process, and Technology

A common misconception is that achieving an effective SAM program is as
simple as having a tool in place to track software throughout its lifecycle.
While a tool is important, it is not enough. To effectively manage and track
software, an organization needs a combination of:

People: Skilled resources that understand the license rules and contracts

Process: Defined steps and policies for how software is approved, purchased, and used

Technology: Tools that help track the inventory on machines and historical license purchases
