About this talk

What does SAM and a cup of your favourite of coffee have in common? You'll have to join us to find out! And if you're registering from South Africa you can have a cup of coffee on us.* Today’s business technology environments have become increasingly complex. Compliance, SaaS subscription models, globalisation, product diversification, cost optimisation, mergers and acquisitions and other business transformation trends are making SAM a top 10 priority for the C-suite. As much as 90% of mid-market customers (5,000 employees or fewer) don’t have effective SAM tools, governance or processes in place to really deliver SAM success. Meanwhile, organisations that do implement SAM effectively can see a 30% software spend reduction during the first year. Software Asset Management (SAM) is the business practice of managing and optimising software applications within an organisation - and the value and benefits of having this visibility and control are far-reaching. For many organisations, the purchasing and management of these assets has become difficult to control.
