Many companies look at Software Asset Management (SAM) as something they can manage with spreadsheets and home grown software. Until a software company performs a license audit and they find their spreadsheets are out of date and then the CEO wants to know why the company is faced with a huge unplanned software bill. Or maybe their software costs are consuming more and more of their limited IT budget and management wants to know if all these software licenses are really being used. Seems like a good question, but they can’t even keep track of what’s installed let alone understanding usage. To address these issues companies need some basic SAM governance in place to bring together their siloed processes and systems for managing software and IT assets. Then they need to figure out what software is actually installed and understand usage to optimize their software licenses. This can help avoid surprises during audits and actually lead to cost savings by reducing unused licenses. The savings can average over two million dollars and greatly reduce your risk.
