All the organizations we talk to have a wide range of maturity and experience in the area of Software Asset Management (SAM). Some are just starting their journey, whilst others may be more advanced in their approach, one thing unites them all in that there are always areas that could be improved, or gaps in skill set that can result in risk or missed opportunity.
Benchmark SAM Maturity
Our complimentary SAM gap analysis service helps our clients to gain specific and independent insight to their level of SAM maturity. Reviews are performed on a strictly confidential basis – as an independent company we seek to preserve our client’s confidentiality and therefore will never share client information or data with software vendors unless the client requests or agrees to us doing so.
In the gap analysis, we will typically focus on the following operational areas (and others if relevant and/or by agreement):
Ownership, definition & maturity of software asset management
Third party supplier management
Software licence lifecycle management
Data and inventory management
Compliance tracking and reporting
We start with a 2-3 hour session with an experienced SAM consultant who will help your organization to identify the key areas of SAM your business needs to focus on. It will provide a firm foundation for you and Concorde to plan how we can work together to drive greater maturity in your organisation.
