Establish a SAM Practice
SAM is comprised of 12 key process areas that effectively address compliance management and optimisation of the licensing estate to manage risks and reduce costs.
Blue Turtle Technologies provides two approaches to assessing a client’s capabilities in this area.
Blue Turtle Technologies can be contracted by the client to conduct a comprehensive SAM assessment through a series of interviews and observations with various stakeholders and role players. The outcome of this assessment will provide insight into the current state of SAM practices.
The scope of the assessment is enterprise wide and will cover the following business areas involved in SAM practices:
• Software request management
• Software acquisition management
• Financial and legal management
• Policy and SAM practice management
The output of the SAM assessment is:
- A detailed report identifying areas of weakness in the current SAM practice
- Our recommendations for improving the existing SAM practices (a remediation roadmap)
- A PowerPoint slide deck of the SAM assessment findings and recommendations
