The Challenge

Most organizations rely too heavily on old school SAM strategies and expensive tooling, hoping to eliminate all non-compliance exposure and optimize IT vendor investments.

The Reality

Traditional SAM programs rarely meet today’s business expectations, aren’t built to support digitization, cloud-based operations, or AI and machine learning platforms. Common pitfalls that prevent value realization include:

  • Lack of Internal Alignment
  • Resources Inaccurate
  • Inaccurate Discovery
  • Disparate or Incomplete Entitlements
  • Competing IT Priorities
  • Lack of Publisher-specific Expertise

The Impact

Outdated SAM programs lead to increased IT supplier TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) and higher financial, compliance, and security risks due to inadequate executive support, unreliable data, and missing vendor expertise.
