IT Asset Manager is hosting an Online Expert Day on Monday, October 28th to Tuesday, October 29th, 2013! Mark this on your calendars!
If you are a customer with a support contract, then we would like to invite you to join us in the IT Asset Manager Support Customer Forum on October 28th to 29th when HP product Experts will be online for 24 hours to answer questions regarding SAM Implementation: SAM BP, SAM Software Coverage, SAM Counter Mechanism.
Software Asset Management is used to quantify and measure financial compliance risks of IT infrastructure and automatically track compliance to prepare customers for software audits. There are four main drivers for Software Asset Management:
- more frequent vendor audits
- complexity of numerous licensing models and terms and conditions defined in contracts
- compliance in virtualized environments and
- high costs of software spend also due to over-compliance
No organization is immune to software vendor audits, in particular large organizations. Gartner reported that in 2011, 65% of organizations were audited, and this number is increasing. Top auditing vendors are mega-vendors: IBM, Oracle and Microsoft, followed by Vmware and SAP. You have to be prepared for an audit or risk non-compliance, fines and future audits. HP Asset Manager and HP Universal Discovery help track installations and calculate compliance on an ongoing basis, allowing you to be prepared for and pass software audits.
This session will answer your questions to effectively implement and maintain the HP Asset Manager SAM package in your environment.
