Gartner, one of the world’s leading research and advisory firms, defines SAM as: a process for making software acquisition and disposal decisions. It includes strategies that identify and eliminate unused or infrequently used software, consolidating software licenses or moving toward new licensing models.

At SoftwareONE, we know that SAM is an essential function that involves not just the right tool but the essential people and processes to ensure a successful SAM operating model. SAM impacts not only how software is being used, but also automation, security, digitization, control of shadow IT, and your future software strategy.
