Effective software asset management (SAM) is crucial to the success of any business, especially for large enterprises or companies with a complex IT infrastructure. However, starting a SAM program can be a daunting task. To help you navigate this process, we have put together a comprehensive SAM Buyers Guide that outlines the most frequent and important technical requirements.

The primary goal of SAM is to ensure that your software usage is always vendor compliant, quality assured, and optimized to maximize cost savings. One of the key ways to achieve this is by applying feature requirements to tasks and tools, which will help you focus on achieving results and maximizing benefits.

This SAM Buyers Guide will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to:

  • Understand the value delivered by a professional SAM solution
  • Analyze the needs of your IT landscape and organizational structure
  • Evaluate functional features such as system integration and data collection
  • Consider cost features such as SaaS management, reharvesting, and cloud BYOL
  • Assess the financial impact of contract tracking, KPI reports, and data security.

By following the guidelines in this guide, you can supercharge your SAM program and ensure that your software assets are always fully optimized to deliver maximum value to your business.
