Software is prevalent in almost all business processes but the licensing and management of these vital assets is rarely understood and often poorly managed. Deloitte helps both vendors and users understand and communicate in the areas of software asset management, including licensing, to deliver both compliance and operational efficiencies. Many of these benefits deliver ongoing and positive, but previously unexpected, results across the enterprise.
Robust Software Asset Management (SAM) can reduce the total cost of software ownership and ensure compliance. It highlights savings opportunities across a range of capital and operational expenditure, directing funds to value-adding projects.
SAM can also enhance service delivery, supplier relationships, and reduce the cost of IT governance. Simple practices can deliver strong returns on investment and enhance an organisation’s ability to manage IT in changing markets.
Deloitte is a leader in this field, with experience across a large number of projects. We focus on tailoring a bespoke SAM approach to our clients’ unique requirements, rather than trying to follow a single ‘silver bullet’ solution.
