Be prepared for a software audit with solid facts and data, and justify your own program for managing software assets.
Software costs, licensing complexity and vendor audits are all on the rise.
According to Gartner, “The number, frequency, and impact of software vendor audits continue to rise rapidly, and are getting C-suite and even board-level attention.” Many organizations are looking for help in managing their software assets effectively.
DXC Software Asset Management (SAM) Advisory Services can help clients assess software licensing compliance and build a business case for becoming more proactive about managing software assets.
While recognizing that all organizations are different, we help clients generate a cost-benefit analysis and justification for establishing SAM service capabilities in their organization. We help to identify SAM objectives and return on investment, which will help IT to obtain approval for implementing SAM.
As well as audit mitigation, effective SAM practices enable you to effectively manage your software investment and cut your software budget by up to 30%.
