What is Software Lifecycle Management?
SLM is the combination of digitized procurement and Software Asset Management (SAM) with the aim of delivering enhanced customer experience and value. It is our best-practice approach for the holistic, organization-wide administration and control of all software and cloud investment, covering the entire product lifecycle from business need to purchase, adoption, management through to retirement of the assets. It takes the best of our SAM and Procurement capabilities and brings them together to maximize the value of your cloud and software portfolios – ensuring you maximize usage of what you have and only pay for what you need. In addition, our Digital Supply Chain (DSC) services augment SLM to ensure you get the right software, at the best price to the right user, in the shortest time possible.
Software Lifecycle Management is Strategic to Your Business
In the past Software Lifecycle Management (SLM) was thought of as a nice to have or something you quickly cobbled together if hit with an audit. Today, organizations have realized that having a proactive SLM engagement that combines the best in people, process and technology provides a level of actionable information to a company that allows them to drive change, save money and keep their software estate protected. Today’s blurred lines of on-premises and cloud, lack of visibility into who owns what and which employees are using what software bloats budgets and leaves companies vulnerable to audit and data insecurities. SLM can stop all of that, allowing your in-house teams to focus on more strategic priorities.
