SAM Service

SAM Service from FGD establishes a baseline assessment of your IT environment through a one-time check-up and clean-up of your licensing situation that provides you with a solid, foundational assessment of your IT environment. It addresses the critical step you need to take before engaging in any new agreement, true-up or renewal. It’s the perfect engagement for companies who want to know their license situation at one given time, ahead of a vendor audit.

  • Publisher; Such as Microsoft, Adobe and many more - potential funding available through the publisher themselves
  • Oracle
  • Desktop Suite (includes Microsoft, Adobe, Security Publisher and a publisher of choice)

SAM Standard Service Processes

Check-up

This comprehensive SAM analysis/assessment targets the SAM methodology implemented by your organization. Working together in a workshop setting, we’ll gain a better understanding of your current SAM practice. Our goal is 100% visibility as we provide an assessment of your software asset environment.

Clean-up

The core clean-up step is license analysis, where we compare what’s installed to what’s entitled based on all the different rights, such as downgrade rights or virtualisation rights. Based on the results of our analysis, we will help you purchase the licenses you need, consolidate the licenses you have, adjust existing contracts with publishers, or make recommendations on uninstallation scenarios.

Keeping Control of your Software Portfolio

Software management is not just about avoiding risk; it’s also about delivering value back to the business. With FGD SAM practice you will;

  • Identify any overlapping software assets or functionality, making your portfolio more streamlined and cost effective
  • Keep your software estate up to date, compliant and free of financial risk
  • Be advised by our consultants on future purchasing requirements and managed metered licensing profile costs
