REDUCE COSTS WITH EFFECTIVE SAM POLICIES
Is your software asset management strategy developed, or is it still in its infancy? When you work with CDW to mature your SAM methodology, you can:
- Increase financial transparency to help accurately forecast your IT budget
- Gain visibility to your current entitlements, allowing you to investigate software you already own before making new purchases
- Drive digital transformation in your organization while reducing financial risk
To help you mature your asset management methodology, CDW offers an ongoing SAM solution backed by a tool to assist with normalizing your entitlements against your deployments. We can also perform a short-term compliance assessment, focused on a single publisher, to discover if your current SAM methodology is working.
