Certero SAM Managed Service - Foundation

Certero Professional Services allow you to easily expand your internal Software Asset Management team with Certero’s specialist global team of licensing experts, all working in harmony with Certero technology to deliver a complete, unified, enterprise-class SAM service.

A Dedicated Service Designed Around Your Tier 1 Vendors

Simply tell us the specific Tier 1 vendor(s) you want to focus on, such as Microsoft, IBM, SAP or Oracle, and we’ll provide you with a maintained Effective License Position (ELP) within the Certero Unified Platform.

Certero licensing experts will then analyze your IT estate for suggested actions and optimizations. This may include compliance risk and remediation actions, renewal requirements, re-harvesting or optimization opportunities.
