Choose the right vendor for long term, sustainable SAM.

Managing your software is a must-have pillar of business success.  

Software Asset Management (SAM) is a proven strategy for controlling budget and maximizing savings while making the best software decisions to support the work of your employees and stakeholders. 

Too often, a company might rush to purchase a SAM solution without investing the necessary time to do the “homework” needed for a long term, sustainable process.

This SAM Buyers Guide will help you: 

  • Evaluate the types of SAM vendors and consultants you need 
  • Identify the SAM services engagement you might require as support  
  • Review hosting options on your servers or their cloud 
  • Learn some of the operational areas of a SAM solution  
  • Understand different licensing models and additional costs

Let’s look at that together.
