According to the report “as software and cloud consumption grow in volume and complexity, customers continue to source external expertise from SAM managed services providers”, it continues “By 2026, growth in spend and complexity will drive 40% of organizations to utilize continuous software asset management (SAM) managed services from expert third parties, up from 20% in 2023”.

SoftwareOne is positioned as a Leader in this year’s report, which states that “Leaders have built a considerable SAM managed services track record, demonstrating their experience to successfully deliver continuous SAM discipline to large, complex enterprises, and are well-positioned to continue delivering services in the future. Leaders have a well-developed vision of market direction, incorporate FinOps and sustainability intheir SAM managed services, and are actively building and improving their competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market. The Leaders quadrant indicates the direction of the SAM managed services market, and Leaders have proved their Ability to Execute and their Completeness of Vision”.

Being recognised as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for the fourth consecutive year, we feel is a testament to our daily dedication to providing first-class services. SAM is evolving into a strategic business intelligence function, extending beyond traditional asset management. SAM teams need to step up and excel in supporting diverse areas such as SaaS management, FinOps, Security, Sustainability, and more. We're thrilled to offer unmatched expertise, innovation, and customer-centric service to support and bring value to our clients.
