Software Asset Management and License Compliance Lifecycle Program
Define, Design, Develop and Deliver multi-vendor lifecycle management service for software asset management helping you to maximise return on investment, minimise risk and ensure peace of mind.
Multi-vendor SAM and License Compliance Lifecycle Program – SAM4D
Software Asset Management (SAM) is a business practice that involves managing and optimising the purchase, deployment, maintenance, utilisation, and disposal of software applications within an organisation. SAM is particularly important for large corporations in regard to redistribution of licenses and managing legal risks associated with software ownership and expiration. This can be important for both eliminating legal costs associated with license agreement violations and as part of a company’s reputation management strategy.
Version 1’s SAM4D is a service wrapper that binds together all the Version 1 delivery components that comprise an end-to-end multi-vendor software asset management and license compliance service. SAM4D is an evolution of our tried and tested software asset methodology with over ten years of evolutionary development. SAM4D will give you full control of your on-premise or cloud software license estate ensuring confidence in your compliance position. Designed to be modular and progressive, SAM4D exposes all the components necessary to build and execute a modern software asset management (SAM) function within your organisation.
