News Release

NEW YORK, NY, USA, 19 August 2020—Gartner, the world’s leading information technology and advisory company, named Deloitte a leader in its August 2020 report titled, Magic Quadrant for Software Asset Management Managed Services.

“We’re proud to be recognized by Gartner. We believe it validates our world-class ability to help clients improve SAM processes and outcomes,” says Jan Corstens, Deloitte Global Risk Advisory EERM Software Lead. “Through our unparalleled knowledge of the vendor-specific licensing ecosystem and far-reaching IT and strategy capabilities, we’re uniquely positioned to deliver value beyond SAM to truly enhance how Deloitte clients do business.”

The Magic Quadrant “assesses the Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision of 11 SAM managed service providers that meet our criteria for inclusion. The positioning of providers in this Magic Quadrant is based on factors determined by Gartner as being relevant to this market worldwide.”

On the market, the Magic Quadrant report explains, “SAM managed services delivered on a continuous basis embody the necessity for sustained SAM discipline. Broadening technology environments fueled by digital initiatives, combined with complex use cases and ambiguous use rights, will continue to create management challenges. Cost optimization and governance benefits, achievable through effectively managing this growing investment and associated complexity across the enterprise, regularly underpin the mandate for contracting SAM managed services. Increased recognition of SAM discipline importance and appreciation of addressable benefits have led to rising volumes of SAM managed services delivered by domain specialists.”

“Deloitte’s culture of innovation powers a constant search for more efficient client solutions. With cybersecurity baked into offerings, Deloitte helps clients improve business results while still prioritizing defense,” says Donna Glass, Deloitte Global Risk Advisory leader.
