SAM Market Trends – are you caught in the wave?

ITAMS’ specialist licensing consultants share some insight into how the Software Asset Management (SAM) market is changing, what this means to SAM providers and why end-users should not steer too far from the main principles of SAM.

“Having worked for several years in Oracle and now within ITAMS’ Oracle team, we are now in a great position to share a few thoughts with you, based on our experience working with both vendors and clients alike.

Without a doubt, the core strategy of a large software publisher is focused on revenue and not on achieving compliance for its end-users. In a large organisation, the need for a SAM process exists but the allocation of dedicated resources is not always covered. For this specific reason, SAM providers have emerged on the market and are here to help. However, things are not as simple as you might imagine.
