Software Asset Management
Software Asset Management (SAM) refers to the discipline of knowing what software you own, where it’s installed, whether or not it is being used, how much you paid for it, and other relevant data about this valuable asset. It’s almost impossible to keep track of all this manually. Let LG Networks employ the SAM processes, supported by the appropriate tools, and put you in control of your software assets.
Software Asset Management Review
Prior to making any decision about your software program, let LG Networks perform a SAM review including:
- Software inventory
- Matching of software licenses
- Review of licensing policies and procedures
