Software asset management (SAM) solutions track software consumption data and optimize asset value delivery. They automate the key processes that allow asset managers to better control over software spending and software license compliance. Through enterprise license agreements and purchase records, SAM solutions handle entitlements to determine and optimize license positioning in comparison to new software. With growing complexities of licensing schemes, infrastructure and operations, decision-makers use these solutions to manage software entitlements. While acquiring software assets have been a daunting task across verticals, managing asset contracts and their lifecycles have triggered a growing need for simple and well-rounded solutions that help businesses save costs and mitigate legal and business risks.
Not only do modern-day SAM solutions align IT investments with business requirements, but they also enable companies to leverage assets, ensure maximum ROIs, and tackle ineffective inventory management. They bring better visibility into asset performance and utilization while also optimizing asset applications and infrastructures by analyzing their utility. These tools also enable faster software vendor audits that are tedious and taxing. Modern company strategies laden with technology investments are set to drive a growing demand for cheaper and effective software that will aid them to navigate the maze of judicial restrictions and compliances associated with software asset purchases and consumption.
The ascent of AI and machine learning technologies and their seamless integration in multifaceted applications is set to drive intelligence and transparency in asset management, allowing companies to gain greater control over assets and their lifecycles.
