Microsoft

Microsoft remains one of the highest risks in terms of SAM (Software Asset Management). This is partially because Microsoft have a relatively active auditing team, but also because virtualisation licensing is quite complex and has had some significant changes over the years. The good news is that it also remains the software that companies can find the greatest ROI (Return on Investment) on when effectively managed.

Not only are there great benefits to be seen in terms of standardisation and the effect this has on internal training and end user support, but effective management can also see reduced costs, and better fit solutions to make BAU (Business as Usual) tasks a lot simpler under the right licensing selections.

A baseline review of Microsoft includes an Effective License Position (ELP), which is a Microsoft accepted output, and can be shared (at will) with your Microsoft Account Manager to help better plan for the future.
