Software Asset Management (SAM) is a series of business processes needed to manage, control and protect a company’s software assets throughout all stages of their lifecycle. With SAM you gain an efficient support to optimize your IT resources as well as a concrete decision support for your growth strategy irrespective of the hardware or the purchasing process.

SAM is nowadays often seen as a component of ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) and through the different ITIL versions is continuously being developed further. The relevant SAM processes are documented in the ISO 19770-3 standards. This standard is the international recognized basis for certifications.

The SAM Optimization Model (SOM), based on the Infrastructure Optimization model (IO), provides a framework to structure SAM processes, define policies and accurately evaluate tools.

With SOM you know where you stand!
