Software Asset Management is a continuous business process, not a one time or ad-hoc exercise. Establishing a strong SAM governance model is key to unlocking the promised benefits and reaching intended goals of a SAM program. Without governance, programs with the best tools, processes and talent will still fail to deliver on reducing compliance risk, optimizing IT investments and providing crucial data for licensing decisions. Join us to discuss the importance of establishing a SAM Governance Model, and where to begin.

Session Highlights Include:

  • Why executive buy-in is key to SAM success
  • How to align SAM objectives to organizational business goals
  • Top reasons SAM programs fail
