Maximise value from your software
Software Asset Management (SAM) is the practice of managing and optimizing the purchase, deployment, maintenance, utilization, and disposal of software applications across your organisation. It’s a cornerstone of effective IT management. According to ITIL, the goals of SAM are to reduce IT costs and limit business and legal risk related to the ownership and use of software, while maximising IT responsiveness and end-user productivity.
It is not uncommon, especially in rapidly expanding organisations, for software to have been purchased or copied on an as needs basis for specific deployments. This lack of consistency means that upgrades take longer and staff are more likely to be working on outdated equipment, which limits the ability of the organisation to respond to external cyber threats. It can also result in the organisation facing significant unbudgeted costs following vendor software audits.
