Define Your Goals

To begin we must establish your end-goals for a SAM function. Through workshops and stakeholders meetings we conduct a requirement analysis. This helps both you and us to understand the components needed for complete SAM. Each customer has a unique combination of software products from different publishers. In addition there are varied skillsets, technology platforms and overall SAM experience. As a result the Define stage is the most important. We need to define YOUR needs and goals.


Design The Perfect Solution

Based upon the outcome of the define stage, we will design a bespoke set of components for you. No existing components? We can provide you with off-the-shelf fully documented processes and procedures that encompass the best of industry expertise with our own hybrid service components to provide the complete suite of policy and procedures coupled with our own technology platform to execute a modern software asset management function in your business


Develop Customised Integration

Once we understand your desires and goals we choose the most appropriate components of our methodology to complement your existing technology and practices.

The integration phase enables us to define data exchange and acquisition touch points, perform repository configuration for your chosen publishers and document your specific SAM architecture in an easily accessible enterprise web technology.
