Software typically accounts for over 30% of most IT budgets and consequently needs careful managing. Taking steps to ensure that these vital assets are working for an organisation can often seem like working with a moving target but with our help we can support you in ensuring that this investment is fully optimised and offering a healthy return.
In addition to the return on investment potential, a focus on SAM can also help to ensure software license compliance, making many organisations less attractive to vendor audits as well helping you to prepare for future IT resourcing decisions.
As detailed on our Journeys homepage, Bechtle has an established model to support our clients, with key tailored steps for every part of the journey that fit your specific requirements. The 4 stages below offer examples of actions Bechtle will carry out to help build your Software Asset Management (SAM) Journey:
A mature SAM process can help organisations correct any potential overspend on software and make sure that any risks are proactively identified and addressed. Fundamentally intended to be part of an organisation's information technology business strategy, the goals of SAM are to reduce information technology (IT) costs and to limit business and legal risk related to the ownership and use of software, whilst maximising IT responsiveness and end-user productivity. SAM is particularly important for corporations in regard to the redistribution of licenses and managing legal risks associated with software ownership and expiration.
