Benchmark your SAM position for Software Audits & Renegotiations

To help you take control of your organisation’s licensing estate, get audit ready and be better informed for any future software renegotiations, we have created a guide on how to ‘Benchmark your SAM Position for Software Audits & Renegotiations’.

The guide is complimentary and sets out the foundations for successful SAM, offers helpful advice on which key software vendors to focus on and provides a step-by-step checklist of activities to build an ELP & Software Audit Report.

How big a risk is your software?

Software Contract & Entitlement Review Service

This service performs a high level review of all existing contracts and entitlement records to produce a Summary of Licence Inventory (SLI) and total software assets owned.

Vendor Risk & Financial Exposure Assessment

Data from the SLI is applied to the ELM 360 (Enterprise Licence Management) Vendor Intelligence Engine (EVIE™), to compile a Summary of Financial Risk Exposure for Software Licences (SFRE).

The SFRE helps you pinpoint and understand the size and nature of any financial risks emanating from software assets in your environment so you can make informed decisions to mitigate them.
