Benefits & Impact of SAM

An effective SAM program supports your overall business strategy, not just the IT infrastructure. Designing a scalable, replicable, and adaptive SAM program based on ISO standards allows you to optimize every area of your business.

Real Benefits. Measurable Impact.

Enables Growth

Traditional. Hybrid. Cloud. As companies continually evolve their software infrastructure, SAM provides the foundation needed to minimize the cost of transition and maximize long-term IT impact.

Enables Efficiency

SAM eliminates redundancies, establishes processes, and creates financial discipline. In fact, studies show that some companies can save as much as 30 percent in annual software costs by implementing SAM programs.

Enables Compliance

With companies using hundreds of software programs in day-to-day operations, SAM helps optimize licenses, mitigate risks, and protect the bottom line.

Trained SAM Professionals Deliver Value

Delivering efficiencies, mitigating risk, and ensuring compliance in an evolving IT environment requires skilled SAM leaders.

SAM Evolves as Cloud, BYOD, and IoT are Adopted

Digital transformation poses new SAM challenges. SAM experts identify transition risks, ensure smooth migration, and adapt SAM plans to ensure companies maximize benefits from their new investments.

SAM Pros are Assets to Any Team

Skilled SAM professionals ensure stakeholders are plugged in, software licenses are compliant, and SAM data sources are trustworthy, ensuring there are no points of failure with a reliable and robust system.

SAM Achieves Efficiencies with Each Iteration

The keys to unlocking the power of SAM is having skilled leadership at its core.
