Software Asset Management
Organisations increasingly combine on premise with cloud services that make it difficult to keep an accurate inventory of software. Micromail uses an industry-recognised SAM (Software Asset Management) program to ensure software is purchased, deployed, managed and retired in line with best practice standards.
Implementing our SAM solution follows a detailed audit and the creation of an exact inventory of what you already have. Combined with the best software asset inventory and analysis tools, such as Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager and Snow License Manager, we will work with your to create policies and procedures that give you full control and visibility throughout the software lifecycle.
We use SAM to make software licencing part of an IT strategy rather than an ad hoc event. Building a centralised procurement model aligned to key vendor licensing programs encourages good governance by controlling costs and business risk. By making software versions, product builds and file formats common across different business units, we help organisations achieve optimal value and users make the most of the software tools at their disposal.
