Controlling the purchase and installation of your software is obviously a necessary first step in a SAM programme, but it is important that you don’t stop there. It is vital that you understand how your software is being used across the organization as this will deliver benefits in a number of areas:

  • Improved security – discovering unauthorized software that could cause a security problem
  • Reduced costs – uncover software that is not being used that can be re-harvested
  • Optimized licenses – ensure users have the correct license type for their job
  • Increased productivity – identify software that is not appropriate during work hours

The information produced by this activity will enable you to more fully understand exactly what software is required by the business going forward.
