To our IT peers, it’s not for lack of hearing you, or understanding your challenges that we continue to knock on your door with our SAM passion. We are here to help you understand the nuances of SAM and have it work for you on your time, and on your budget for your organization.
This is because we have seen (and implemented) SAM at work in real organizations, and we have seen how much of a difference it makes. We have also seen the opposite, where organizations are badly burnt for lack of proper tools, processes and skills. We also know that there are risk factors in your environment that you might have no idea about:
A single rogue virtual instance of SQL in a 3 node cluster where VMotion is enabled can cost the organization $150 000,00 if licensing hasn’t been carefully considered.
We found 600 licensing changes to a common publisher contract in just three years. This could negate the original contract – leaving you open to vulnerabilities.
We find unauthorized software in almost every client engagement – unlicensed software is a leading contributor to cyber security risks.
