One of the biggest challenges SAM practitioners face is change.
My colleague Peter Turpin recently wrote a series of Blogs about why M&A due diligence needs to include SAM, here I look specifically at divestitures and how to manage software compliance after a split.

Yes, change is a constant. It’s hard enough dealing with internal changes, but what happens when changes are imposed by software publisher activity?
