White paper: Find the right SAM tool
The cost of software is a significant part of any IT budget. The more software used, the greater the amount and complexity of inventory data to be processed.
Excel-based tools reach their limits here, but with a software asset management solution you are always in control of your licensing situation.
Software manufacturers also invest large sums to extend and improve functionality. They need their customers to recognise the value they deliver, and acquire sufficient licences to match usage levels. On the one hand, this exposes organisations to the risk of having too few licences and the associated financial consequences that will inevitably be revealed by the next audit. On the other hand, analyses and empirical data show that every company wastes money on unused software. Only a SAM tool is capable of providing the required process efficiency and functionality for valid documentation of your licensing situation.
