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 own 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. SLM with SoftwareONE takes the burden off of your in-house resources as well.
Highly experienced, Software Portfolio Management, Software Lifecycle Management, Procurement, and technology services experts serve as trusted advisors for our customers.
We provide real-time insights and we always work on the customers’ behalf, helping them maximize their returns to drive innovation. We are tool agnostic with global focus and global purchasing power.
We work with the top software asset management tools in the industry bringing you the optimal experience in data collection and analysis to make sure your SLM program is successful.
This is in relation to both audits and knowing your software estate - the more detail you have on what is deployed the better you can protect it. Software Lifecacle Management helps you do this.
SLM provides companies with a full report of what is deployed, the contract terms, and license inventory, enabling you to make smarter IT decisions in regards to software deployment and consumption, resulting in marked cost savings.
Leverage Resource Expertise
Not every organization has the internal resources to conduct a SLM engagement. Using a third party tool and the related expertise behind the tool, alleviates the burden on your IT department.
Over one third of software deployed is wasted. SLM provides the information you need to clamp down on wasted costs.
