Mid-September Microsoft had the opportunity to sponsor the Gartner ITAM Summit in Orlando, Fla., where we announced new software asset management (SAM) services. (Check out our full recap of the event >>HERE<< )
Following the successful announcement at Gartner ITAM, we wanted to take a moment to give a deeper dive into SAM services and explore the added value these services provide.
Our SAM services vision is for all customers to have the knowledge and resources they need to optimize their SAM practices and realize maximum value from their software investments. This includes the ability to manage changes in technology, improve competitive advantage, and reduce security, legal and financial risks. To that end, Microsoft provides guidance, tools and resources which give customers a head start on building best practices for software asset management, and to connect customers with highly trained, qualified partners who can help them achieve their goals.
There are three components of SAM services, each individually adding value, but when combined, they really help a company develop a strong SAM practice.
Just as important as the components and tools available through SAM services, is the impact the program can make on an organization. Many teams and departments of an organization can benefit.
Have a question about SAM services or curious for more information? Here are some helpful links to help get your organization started down the road to improved security, reduced costs, increased efficiency and compliance.
