Softline Solutions GmbH // Software Asset Management // What is Software Asset Management

No insight without transparency.

Software Asset Management (SAM) provides insight into software assets for your organisation, whereby you can take measures to achieve software license compliance and avoid unnecessary costs. Without this insight you cannot achieve license compliance and prevent or limit financial risks from audits. Whatever Software Asset Management objectives your organisation has, Softline Solutions can help you reach the desired level of SAM maturity. Because only when SAM is set up correctly can you gain total insight into and control over your entire software landscape and IT infrastructure.

Software Asset Management: Where are you now?

Every organisation has different needs regarding the implementation of Software Asset Management. Perhaps various processes are already present, and the installed software is viewed in a particular way. Depending on what the organisation would like to achieve and what objectives have been set, an approach and a schedule are drafted together with the internal stakeholders. A short-term plan, supplemented by a long-term strategy, in order to help the organisation attain its stated objectives.

What would you like to achieve?

  • Continuous insight into and control over the software license compliance position for your top x software producers?
  • Realisation of savings on existing contracts?
  • Insight and control in order to draft budgets based on well-founded forecasts?   
  • Software licensing and contract optimisation for all software products your organisation uses?
  • Preparation for audits of your most important software publishers?

Whatever your organisation’s objectives are, Softline Solutions can help you realise them in a way that suits your organisation.
