Taming the Beast they Call SAM

The Ideal

Imagine it: An up-to-date Effective License Position (ELP) for every single one of the multitude of products in use within your organization, and the controls in place to deliver cost-avoidances and cost-savings. Sounds ideal but is it achievable?

Unfortunately, it probably isn’t.

Sure, if your relatively small organization only uses Microsoft Office alongside a handful of client-based applications, then maybe you can dare to dream. If you’re one of the thousands of people who are pulling their hair out at the prospect of having to tame their organization’s software asset management beast, then perhaps not.

Wild Animal

Sometimes it feels like SAM is a wild animal; you understand the basics, but it’s unpredictable, difficult to control and prone to buck all over the place if you sit on it. Just when you think you’ve mastered SAM, along comes further unwanted behaviour you weren’t even aware of before – while teaching it to sit, you forgot to teach it not to bite.
