SAM Maturity Assessment
How is your organization performing in the field of Software Asset Management? Do you have full control over your software landscape? Is your software expenditure at a manageable level? Do you have a solid SAM policy in place with well-defined, fixed processes? Or is it time to start taking steps to expand your field of vision, improve your control and place your SAM team in the driver’s seat? ITAM solutions’ SAM Maturity Assessment will help you map out your current situation, providing you with a concrete and realistic roadmap towards SAM maturity.
The SAM Maturity Assessment is always a customized solution, tailored to your needs. Based on desk research and interviews with stakeholders, we first evaluate the ‘as is’ situation. We then complete a detailed inventory to analyze the organization’s current position with regards to SAM, identifying potential risks and possibilities for improvement. After initial consultation, we move on to define the desired ‘to be’ situation. Once we have agreed on the ‘as is’ and ‘to be’ situation, we’ll prepare the SAM Roadmap – a realistic step-by-step plan to achieve SAM maturity.
SAM Growth model
Every SAM Maturity Assessment is based on the SAM Growth model developed by ITAM solutions, based on our longstanding SAM expertise and many years of experience with SAM at a large number of organizations (SME and large enterprises) in various sectors. The model consists of four phases of SAM maturity: Base, Optimize, Excellence and Full Control.
