Building a Holistic SAM Program

SAM is more than having a tool. Without skilled resources, governance, process,

The Benefits & Limitations
of SAM Tools

Software asset management tools (SAM) tools
are powerful resources for organizations that can
properly set them up and consistently utilize them
correctly. Unfortunately, SAM tool customers are
often oversold on unrealistic expectations about
how comprehensive current market tools are,
and how easy they are to use.
