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.

Licence Optimisation Advisory

This advisory aims to optimise ELPs for top vendors. It reviews ELPs generated and seeks to improve data quality and accuracy of the ELP report. Licence recycling/substitution and maintenance termination opportunities are also identified to increase the licence utilisation ratio and reduce costs.

Having the right licence entitlement will ensure you mitigate potential risk and reduce over spending on licences that are not required by the business. This advisory will help you align licensing strategy to IT and business growth strategy for long term business return.
