Software Asset Management - A Quick Guide for Senior IT Decision Makers
Software Asset Management (SAM) is increasing in strategic importance because, amongst other things, it has the power to make or break your Digital Transformation strategy
So, what is it? In a nutshell, Software Asset Management (SAM) is a set of processes and functions used to manage and optimize the software assets owned by your organization. This can include reducing or re-harvesting software licenses to save costs, identifying and fixing security vulnerabilities across the IT ecosystem or managing complex technological change programs, most commonly associated with Digital Transformation projects.
Older legacy tools used to manage these processes and functions require a lot of manual processes to operate, which produces poorer quality outputs, slower and at higher cost. This in turn slows down your Digital Transformation projects, allows IT security vulnerabilities to go undetected and unresolved and, means you cannot get full control of your assets.
Next generation solutions, which offer you advanced and modern capabilities, such as automation, a single data source and powerful analytics, produce superior quality outputs, faster and at lower cost. These solutions enable you to accelerate your Digital Transformation strategy, rapidly identify and resolve your IT security issues, and gain complete visibility and control over your software assets.
