One place to manage all types of software assets
“Software Asset Management (SAM) is the infrastructure and processes necessary for effective management, control and protection of software assets throughout all stages of their lifecycle” — Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL).
Hexaware SAM Practice helps enterprises avoid the pitfalls of inadequate licensing and poor procurement. Enterprises globally strive to manage their software assets and establish the source of truth to control and protect software assets effectively. SAM aims to reduce costs and limits risk related to the ownership and use of software while maximizing IT responsiveness and productivity.
The complexity and costs required to respond to an unexpected audit present risks around unforeseen fees to ‘true-up’ the license position. Most organizations struggle with these questions about cost, complexity and efficiency of licensing audits.
This global information services company was faced with a glaring question: “How do I manage my inventory and entitlements effectively?”
Software asset management should not be perceived as a one-time project. Rather, it should be viewed as an ongoing strategic program that needs to be continually evaluated and modified to meet the dynamic needs of an organization. SAM processes must therefore be flexible enough to accommodate changes within the organization.
The right people must be made responsible for essential roles within the SAM process. Without this responsibility, a SAM tool is just an isolated software product. Securing SAM processes and assigning responsibility is just as important as the SAM tool itself which allows the tool to function as a means to generate valuable information, leading to suggest improvisations to the software.
Considering these, the following points will be taken into account for ongoing operations:
