Is your company prepared for a software audit? Do you know what software products you use, and if they’re all correctly licensed? Are you aware of your rights and obligations as a licence owner? Are you prepared for your annual True Up statement? Should you migrate to a newer-generation operating system? Don’t worry if you can’t answer these questions right away. We have the solutions to help you find them: Our SAM License Compliance Check and True-Up-Service.
SAM LCC is a snapshot of your software deployments and licensing situation. We’ll take on the software inventory of your existing software distribution tool or install a scanning tool that prepares data accordingly and searches your network for existing software. In addition to this, we will take a full, retroactive licence inventory and compare it with your current installations. The resulting compliance report will reveal any mismatched licences and installations, cover recommendations for remedying the situation and provide additional key information on your licence management.
Our licence management experts can help you answer these questions. From manufacturer audits and purchasing new licences to the migration of existing licences and licence contracts.
