Getting a clear picture of your software estate is only the beginning of your journey. Achieving full-tilt SAM Maturity is a long-term process and therefore that journey can take longer than you expect. In some cases, it can be a multi-year journey involving a lot more than meets the eye. That’s because it takes time to develop the kind of business intelligence you need to enable good Software Licensing Management (SLM) and SAM decision-making.
But if you’ve got a clear picture of where you stand, you’re well on your way.
Assessing your current position along the sliding scale of SAM Maturity is your first step. A complete SAM transformation will involve a total of six steps. Luckily, speeding up that first step is possible with our SAM Diagnostic Services.
And once you’ve achieved a detailed current state assessment, you’re ready for phase two. That’s where we begin creating a custom strategy to get your organization on the road to advanced SAM Maturity. In this next phase, you’ll receive a detailed project plan for your target state, whether it’s basic or advanced Software Licensing Management (SLM) or SAM.
