Softline Solutions Northern Europe // What is Software Asset Management

No insight without oversight

Software Asset Management (SAM) provides insight into software assets for your organisation, whereby you can take measures to achieve software license compliance and avoid unnecessary costs. Without this insight you cannot achieve license compliance and prevent or limit financial risks from audits.

Whatever SAM / ITAM objectives your organisation has, Softline Solutions can help you reach the desired level of maturity. Because only when SAM / ITAM is set up correctly can you gain total insight into and control over your entire software landscape and IT infrastructure.

Software & IT Asset Management: Where are you now?

Every organisation has different needs regarding the implementation of SAM / ITAM. Perhaps various processes are already present, and the installed software is viewed in a particular way. Depending on what the organisation would like to achieve and what objectives have been set, an approach and a schedule are drafted together with the internal stakeholders. A short-term plan, supplemented by a long-term strategy, in order to help the organisation attain its stated objectives.

Softline Solutions House of ITAM®

Softline Solutions' tried and tested approach is based on the ISO/IEC 19770-1:2017 standard for ITAM and best practices from the hundreds of international SAM / ITAM projects that take place each year. This approach is visualised as a house built from the ground up: the Softline Solutions House of ITAM®.

  • Continuous insight into and control over the software license compliance position for your top x software publishers?
  • Realisation of savings on existing contracts?
