Software License Optimization Value Acceleration Service

Realizing the Value of your License Management Investment

Capture and Report a Higher Return on Investment for your Software Asset Management Program

Implementing a Software Asset Management (SAM) and License Optimization solution comes with considerable expectations for business value, including decreased software license and maintenance spend, reduced license compliance risk and increased operational efficiency. Organizations are under the microscope to clearly demonstrate the return on this investment and prove value to the organization.

It can sometimes be difficult, however, for enterprises to fully realize the value of their SAM tool investment for a number of reasons. The factors hindering this value realization are often related to a lack of operational staff to support the solution, low SAM program maturity, and inadequate governance over SAM processes, all of which are critical to success.

Far too often, organizations have considerable setbacks or are slow to demonstrate the expected value after the SAM tool has been implemented and need help operationalizing the solution to meet their business goals and objectives.
