FAQs

Software asset management (SAM) isn’t everyone’s forte, and it can be pretty tricky to get your head round at times. If your question isn’t answered below, feel free to get in touch.

Software Asset Management (SAM) is a business practice that involves managing and optimising the purchase, deployment, maintenance, utilisation, and disposal of this highly important asset within an organisation.

 

Fundamentally intended to be part of an organisation's information technology business strategy, the goals of SAM are to reduce information technology (IT) costs and to limit business and legal risk related to the ownership and use of software, whilst maximizing IT responsiveness and end-user productivity. SAM is particularly important for corporations in regard to the redistribution of licenses and managing legal risks associated with software ownership and expiration.

Some of the main Software Asset Management (SAM) challenges today are directly linked to resources. Even if time and effort has been put in to select the right tools for the job and a baseline has been achieved, SAM is an ongoing program that needs constant review and attention. Even the best SAM tools need to be ‘driven’ by someone with good software licensing knowledge. This knowledge will have to be maintained as software licensing is a dynamic industry with constant changes across the board.

 

Getting board level buy-in for SAM and this resource is therefore often difficult with SAM unfortunately having other, more urgent projects, scheduled in ahead of it. But the good news is that there is ROI (Return on Investment) with a SAM programme in place, ROI on financial commitments through reharvesting and contract scrutiny…but also ROI with regards to standardisation and the positive effects this has on training and end user support.

EasySAM are an independent Software Asset Management (SAM) consultancy, an impartial advisory body without any agendas other than providing analysis and advice around the software you purchase and deploy.

 

We help organisations correct any potential overspend on software and make sure that any risks are proactively identified and addressed. Software is an asset that is easily overlooked, often not being re-harvested or used to its full capacity. As it makes up a large portion of any IT budget, this is an area where you can see quick returns if managed correctly.

EasySAM cover many different software vendors in their services portfolio, including all (but not limited to) the BSA vendors.
