Software Asset Management (SAM) creates transparency about the existing software assets of your organisation. Because only what is known can be controlled and appropriate measures derived from it. In doing so, we follow one goal - to achieve compliance, control and cost savings for your IT.
Together with you and your organisation's key decision-makers, our specialised consultants develop a specific roadmap: Only if SAM is structured holistically ꟷ through the right combination of administration, processes and technology ꟷ you will get complete transparency and (budget) control. Thus, you are effectively prepared in the event of a vendor audit. As the European market leader for SAM, our step-by-step approach is based on vendor-independent best practices. We implement SAM together with you on the basis of ISO/IEC 19770-1:2017.

SAM Service Lifecycle
We define software asset management as an IT service. That is why we structure SAM using a service phase model based on the ITIL framework and ISO/IEC 19770-1. If you introduce or practice software asset management in your company, our standard ensures a complete consideration of your SAM organisation, your processes and, of course, the entire life cycle of your software. Our SAM Service Lifecycle defines clear objectives and procedures for each phase of your software asset management. As a specialist in all phases, we offer you services that are specifically adapted to your needs and the characteristics of your organisation. To ensure the best possible quality in our projects, we work with the three leaders of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Software Asset Management 2020.
