Software Asset Management (SAM)

Software Asset Management includes all processes and infrastructures necessary to plan, manage, control and protect the investment made related to business software, throughout its lifecycle.

Organizations face three challenges in the area of SAM:

  • Ensure compliancy
  • Decrease the software and license cost
  • Reduce complexity

In order to gain a reliable and comprehensive view of acquired software licenses, installed software products, and existing contracts require not only the IT-department but also several other business departments such as: procurement, controlling, and finance. Each of these is involved in one way or another and in some instances operates independently of each other.
This is precisely where SAM comes into being: it interlinks the different business departments within a company regarding communication and handling of software licenses; it creates sustainable transparency for contracts, licenses and software installations.
