Finding a toolset vendor or solution provider capable of delivering all the benefits of Software Asset Management (SAM) across your entire IT estate, and whatever your circumstances, is a major challenge.
Your toolset vendor may have the technology, but lack the servicesYou may be confident you’ve selected the right technology to meet your requirements. But what about service and support? Can your chosen technology provider offer a comprehensive in-house capability? Can they help you implement a SAM programme effectively and efficiently, ensuring you derive maximum benefit and ultimately become fully self-sufficient?
Your solution partner may have the right services, but are they underpinned with the right technology?You may have selected an excellent SAM solution provider able to offer all the services you need, but are they using the right technology or approach? They may be dependent on highly-specialised manual processes or use tools based on legacy technology. This may be fine while you have the partner in place, but how will you ever become self-sufficient without the latest technology, offering the highest levels of automation, minimizing the need for manual intervention?
Having the right people is keyThe ability to provide the right level of support or services necessary to help you successfully implement a SAM programme, comes down to one key thing: people. If you want to build your own in-house capability around a particular technology, you’ll need a toolset vendor with the skills and experience to provide the initial training and support necessary to bring staff up to speed as quickly as possible. Equally, if you opt for a SAM Managed Service solution, you’ll want to ensure that it is delivered by a partner able to deliver outstanding results, consistently and as cost-effectively as possible. If you fall somewhere between the two – and ultimately want to transition from Managed Service to self-sufficiency – then it is absolutely vital that your selected partner has the necessary flexibility and knowledge-transfer skills to help you get where you want to be easily and effectively.
Flexible deployment is vital: on-prem, cloud or hybrid
Your chosen software asset management solution has to be quick and easy to implement, with the necessary flexibility to fit with your particular requirements and align with any existing infrastructure strategy.
