Overcoming key Software Asset Management challenges

ITConsult can help you overcome the challenges most business face when looking to implement their SAM strategy and the difficulties of managing software licensing.


To undertand your full IT estate, your SAM must be able to audit all platforms across your network including desktops, servers, mobile regardless of their platform.


Finding all the applications across your business is key. Any SAM you deploy must be able to discover and track the “unknowns” to be truly effective.


To manage your software costs and assets properly you need to track both the presence and the usage of all your applications. Is daily or weekly usage reporting enough or do you need to be more granular?


With all the applications used in your business, do you know what you actually paid for and what you are entitled to use? Identifying only installed applications doesn’t show the true picture.


The SAM solution you choose should support all the necessary license types and automate key reconciliation tasks you use today plus those you might use in the future.


Any SAM solution you deploy should be easy to manage and give you the tools to proactively drive cost savings and understand your license compliance and software expenditure.
