Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

You don’t have to rob a bank to fund your SAM program

How to make internal chargebacks work for you?

Over the years, I have spoken with countless organizations about their SAM program and challenges. The one challenge that virtually every organization faces is funding. With IT organizations spending 30% of their entire budget on software, one would think funding a SAM program makes good business sense, but unfortunately, that is not the case. However, there is a solution. In this webinar we will present new creative ways to help ensure your program gets properly funded with minimal resistance or pushback.

  • Identifying SAP Indirect Usage Recorded: Nov 2 2016 4 mins
    Joachim Paulini; Dan Kirtley
    Snow Software’s Joachim Paulini discusses SAP Indirect Usage; what it is and why there is a growing focus from SAP auditors in this area.

    SAP charges for Indirect Usage of its software and may penalize customers heavily if they are not correctly licensed. Every user that creates, reads or manipulates SAP data must be authorized and licensed to do so (whether directly or indirectly).

    An example of Indirect Usage is where the SAP system is accessed or queried by a third-party application. This might be automated or could be the result of a user accessing functionality or reporting in the said third-party application. A major challenge for organizations is to assess the level of SAP license compliance and quantify the financial risk Indirect Usage to which they are exposed.

    In this video, Joachim Paulini investigates the indicators of Indirect Usage which are tell-tale signs of the SAP system being accessed by third-party applications. By highlighting these indicators, Snow Optimizer for SAP ® Software enables budget planning and proactive mitigation of this financial risk.

  • Automating System Measurement in SAP Recorded: Nov 2 2016 5 mins
    Joachim Paulini; Dan Kirtley
    Snow Software Technical Lead for SAP solutions Joachim Paulini talks about with how using Snow Optimizer for SAP ® Software enables organization to fully automate their License Administration Workbench (LAW) report preparation and improve their SAP license management.

    SAP Basis Administrators can spend weeks on manually preparing the LAW. Where SAP systems run into tens or hundreds, Snow Optimizer for SAP ® dramatically reduces the time spent collecting and preparing the required data through automating the data collection and consolidation processes.

    With its ability to define usage profiles based on consumption data, Snow Optimizer for SAP ® Software can automate license classifications against a growing user population.

    Because the costs of different SAP licenses vary so widely, Joachim Paulini explains why it’s crucial to allocate users the individual license type that fits their true needs. By identifying which users best match a specific usage profile, Administrators can accurately determine if a user is correctly licensed or needs to be reclassified. Automated rules can reclassify users so that their license best matches their actual needs.

  • Why you still need HAM to do SAM Recorded: Oct 7 2016 34 mins
    David Foxen, SAM Evangelist
    With so much focus on the new software license models and cloud services, organisations need to remember the importance hardware asset management (HAM) plays in contributing to good SAM. Organisations are just as guilty of overspending on hardware assets as they are on software assets, but with good technology you can mitigate hardware risks, save money, and manage the lifecycle of your hardware and software assets effectively.

    Effective HAM processes, policies and the ability to see what assets you have, will help you streamline your IT estate and reduce spending on hardware and software. Without proactive HAM you will find yourself purchasing licenses for devices that are hidden in someone’s desk, or are not being used effectively. This will impact prices for things like your software agreements and the company wide rule that Microsoft insists on for SMBs.

    So, don’t forget about your hardware assets. Proactively manage them and you’ll reap the benefits for both HAM and SAM!
