Delivering a Cost-effective, Secure, and Compliant Software Portfolio

As any expert in Software Asset Management (SAM) knows, the scope of their role goes way beyond a simple exercise in license compliance. That’s why we like to talk Software Portfolio Management & Compliance. It’s about giving SAM teams insights into what software assets they’ve purchased and installed, where these are located, how they’re configured, and who’s using them – across on-premise, cloud, and hybrid environments. This is valuable data that supports a perfectly optimized, secured, and compliant software portfolio, as well as more strategic IT decision-making.

The Confidence of Knowing

Software Portfolio Management & Compliance enables your organization to maintain complete control over its software assets, and to realize the full benefits of any investment. As a result, you can progress digital transformation projects with confidence, knowing that you have the control and transparency needed to fine-tune capabilities in line with actual business demand. So whether you want to negate the impact of shadow IT or unpatched software, mitigate the costs of unlicensed assets and uncontrolled cloud settings, or remove the risk of non-compliant software: our service has you covered.

Delivering on Your Ambition

Introducing Software Portfolio Management & Compliance into your organization typically involves a three-step process:

Technology

The first stage involves the building of an accurate view of what’s running in your IT environment. Doing that requires an effective inventory tool for ensuring the information you’ll be basing decisions on is accurate and timely, and to help we’ll detail the pros and cons of the different solutions available on the market.


Knowledge

Armed with this inventory data, you can next identify all instances of ‘shadow IT’, consolidate vendors, gather critical patch-level information, and compare usage levels with contracts to ensure compliance. It’s here that we offer our thorough knowledge of ever-changing software licensing rules, alongside the advice needed to guide your decision-making.

People & Processes

The final step, once your software environment has been optimized, is to ensure it stays that way. To this end we can help introduce automated processes and end user training, as well as on-going support to ensure the continuous management of your software portfolio – leaving you free to focus on more strategic issues.
