James onsite today in Dartmouth carrying out a Microsoft SAM audit.
What is SAM?
Software asset management (SAM) is a business practice that involves managing and optimizing the purchase, deployment, maintenance, utilisation, and disposal of software applications within an organisation.
We have recently had a number of our customers contacted by Microsoft directly regarding their Microsoft licensing. Microsoft are notifying them that a Software Asset Management (SAM) review is required to be completed to ensure they are compliant with Microsoft’s guidelines. This initiative is required as per the terms and conditions of any Microsoft Volume licence agreements.
SOFTWARE ASSET MANAGEMENT
Effective software asset management (SAM) can save organisations thousands by driving down unnecessary IT costs, improving productivity and avoiding both legal and security risks. Industry analysts report that the average UK business is over-licensed on around 30% of its software and at least 30% under-licensed in other areas.
Whether you need to prove compliance, implement an IT asset management program, or just get your business in order, contact us to complete a software audit to save you time and money and provide peace of mind.
