SAM Maturity Assessment

Enhance your SAM program with the insight of focused and relevant improvement recommendations.

Challenge: How do you measure SAM maturity & target areas for improvement? 

Whether your organization is just starting its Software Asset Management (SAM) journey or looking to assess and enhance, a SAM Maturity Assessment is a good way of both benchmarking current practices and targeting areas for improvement.

A professionally delivered SAM Maturity Assessment will help you understand where you are today and what actions are needed to ensure your SAM program will support the delivery of corporate goals. The clarity obtained from a SAM Maturity Assessment will directly contribute to key areas such as visibility of assets across your business, providing valuable information to other corporate functions, the critical governance and controls needed to identity, manage and control risk, and to the prioritization of cost reduction initiatives.
