The Importance of Designing and Implementing Effective SAM Processes

Many organisations attempt to manage their software licence compliance through a number of sporadic processes, procedures, tasks and activities split across different departments which are not centralised.

Read our latest blog and find out how you can implement centralised SAM processes to enable your organisation to manage your software licence compliance more effectively.

Policy, Practices & Governance Advisory

Policy & Practices Advisory

This advisory will help to define the Minimum Code of Practice (MCoP) for all central and business unit IT staff in order to maintain licence compliance for in-scope software assets.

Governance Advisory

A review of the existing governance framework or the design of a new one will be undertaken to ensure compliance with the future SAM service. The governance model promotes a collaborative approach to SAM rather than individual departments competing for budget or contractual control.

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.
