Gain Control of Your Software Assets
Developing an effective Software Asset Management (SAM) practice is complex and takes time to build out properly. However, many executives believe that simply automating the process will be a quick fix. While automation will seem to work initially, there are a few key practices that should be implemented to ensure that you are in the best position to gain control of your software assets.
There are a few questions that your organization should be able to answer when it comes to your current SAM practice:
- Do you have continuous visibility into your software investments?
- Are you consistently tracking, assessing and managing software licensing and their usage?
- Do you have policies in place to manage spend and audit risks?
