Software Asset Management (SAM) Maturity Assessment
Software Asset Management: its not just about the tooling.
For many IT leaders looking to invest and improve their Software Asset Management (SAM) capability, invariably the case will be made to procure SAM tooling as part of the transformation journey.
However, is a new set of tooling the right decision for your organisation?
What other aspects of SAM should be considered when creating your business case for investing in SAM improvements?
What criteria should be looked at when assessing your SAM capabilities and the overall maturity of your SAM function?
The SAM improvement and transformation journey
In order to fully assess an organisations SAM capabilities, a holistic approach will be required that looks at not just the tooling and operational aspects, but also other key functions and processes such as procurement, contract and financial management that should be part of the overall SAM capability.
Organisations with highly mature SAM capabilities, will understand that integration and collaboration across these different functional teams can be a key driver for SAM transformation and improvement.
