Rethink Software Asset Management

No matter the industry, every business relies on software to make the job easier and faster. As organisations increasingly harness the power of technology, on-premise and in the cloud, the need for proper software asset management becomes more important than ever before.

Utilising cloud services requires as much focus. For vendors who sell cloud services, non-compliance is no longer an issue. However, the businesses consuming SaaS will find that overpayment and underutilisation can quickly escalate costs if consumption is not controlled and managed.

The combination of multi-vendor software asset management and cloud cost management skills is rare, and expensive. This is where we come in. With many years’ worth of experience working within the vendor environment, we have an in-depth understanding of how best to optimise your environment, creating SAM and cloud cost management programmes that deliver reduced risk, cost savings and ongoing alignment between actual need and technology spend.
