Manage software licences, ownership, use and expiration efficiently
Software Asset Management (SAM) is a business practice that involves managing and optimising the purchase, deployment, maintenance, utilisation and disposal of software applications within an organisation. Part of an organisation’s IT strategy, it aims to reduce costs and mitigate risks associated with inappropriate software deployment.
It is vitally important for companies to comply with software licensing conditions at all times. This is particularly the case for large organisations that need to redistribute software licences and efficiently manage any business or legal implications associated with software ownership, use and expiration.
