SAM Standard Service Process
This comprehensive SAM analysis/assessment targets the SAM methodology implemented by your organization. Working together, we’ll gain a better understanding of your current SAM practice. Our goal is to provide 100% visibility as we assess your software asset environment.
Leveraging the information provided during check-up, SoftwareONE will help establish the steps needed to help your company eliminate risks, clean up software assets, and maintain ongoing control.
Our SAM team will use an agentless solution to scan your desktop and server environment. We’ll also work with software publishers, depending on the scope of work, to gather all your volume licenses, as well as all of your tracked licenses.
The core clean-up step is license analysis, where we compare what’s installed to what’s entitled based on all the different rights, such as downgrade rights or virtualization rights. Based on the results of our analysis, we will help you purchase the licenses you need, consolidate the licenses you have, adjust existing contracts with publishers, and/or make recommendations on uninstallation scenarios.
