What is Software Asset Management?
Software Asset Management (SAM) is the strategic process for optimising the way you procure, deploy and license software and cloud services. Effective SAM enables you to reduce software and SaaS spend, identify unused resources, and gain greater control over your software landscape. This all done while ensuring compliance with licensing and SaaS use rights. Getting guidance on Software Asset Management from a dedicated cloud IT partner like the 848 Group will help you achieve optimum results.
Through our Software Asset Management service, we typically help clients reduce their software spend by 25%. Our team of certified cloud specialists work to uncover opportunities to consolidate licenses, identify compliance and security risks, and eliminate wasted resources. This saves you time, helps to reduce SaaS costs, and removes the burden of software management from your internal team.
What Software Asset Management Can Do for You.
Optimise your Software Spend.
Get the most value out of your software. We’ll help you find opportunities to consolidate licenses, identify underused licenses and eliminate wasted resources.
Achieve Cost Savings.
Lots of organisations are over-licensed or over-paying without realising it. We’ll help you establish areas you can save costs and regain control over spiralling software costs.
Non-compliance with licensing or SaaS subscription use rights can result in financial losses through failed audits or penalties. We’ll ensure your licensing is compliant with agreements.
Remove the Burden from IT Teams.
Software Asset Management can be both complex and time-consuming. Outsourcing will enable your teams to focus on things that matter most.
Streamline Licensing and Renewals.
Say goodbye to navigating licensing and the worry of renewals. With an expert team of cloud specialists, we’ll manage this for you, helping you get the best price.
Get Started with a Software License Review.
If you’re looking at engaging with an IT partner for Software Asset Management, a Software License Review is a great place to start. A Software License Review is essentially a deep dive into your SaaS and cloud landscape to gain full visibility of your current estate. This includes an assessment of amounts and types of licenses you currently have, how well they are (or aren’t) being utilised, overlapping or conflicting licenses and more. Software License Reviews should be performed regularly as licensing often changes. Regular reviews are included within our Software Asset Management service.
Whether you simply want a standalone review or are looking to take the first steps toward a full Software Asset Management service, our software licensing specialists are here to help you optimise your software landscape. Plus, with our expertise in IT consultancy, we can also provide consultations and guidance to completely refresh and redesign your software strategy. Whatever you’d like to achieve, we can help your business at every stage of your software asset lifecycle.
Different end users will use a range of digital tools and software for role-specific tasks and processes. When deploying new software onto end user devices, it’s important it’s done so in line with the security standards and controls outlined in your organisation.
Our Application Packaging services ensure you enjoy reliable, hassle-free, secure software deployment and application migrations to user devices and workspaces. We’ll package, test, and deploy your applications with the accurate system and user settings that meet your organisations requirements.
This reduces the headache for your IT team and ensures feature and security updates are delivered with greater efficiency.
