SoftwareONE Named Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant

Strengths in Scale and International Presence

Companies around the world are settling into a new normal of business, with digital transformation at the forefront of this shift. Digital transformation has now become vital for businesses of all sizes to survive into the future. One of the ways to quickly make the leap to digital transformation is by looking into your software lifecycle. 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.

Gartner named SoftwareONE a leader in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Software Asset Management (SAM) Managed Services.

Current IT Challenges

SoftwareONE’s 30 years of expertise in the digital transformation and SLM space allows us to help organizations with their most pressing challenges:

Sudden Shift to Remote Work

The urgent need to digitally transform – basically overnight –  caught many companies off guard, and they have to create solutions faster than ever.

Adapting to New Solutions

Companies that weren’t ready for this shift are experiencing a significant impact on revenue, and have to quickly adopt new solutions to prevent more business disruptions. This involves implementing new solutions, running the platforms and training employees on how to use the technology.


Those who had already started their digital transformation journey were able to react quickly, but many are working with limited resources. For them, the challenge is keeping the momentum going and making permanent changes that address immediate needs.

Why SoftwareONE?

By analyzing your current software lifecycle situation, SoftwareONE can assess your maturity and uncover ways to optimize software use and define cost savings potential throughout your lifecycle, end-to-end.
