Health checks

Software asset management can be overwhelming and intimidating if it’s only thought of when an audit letter arrived. The moment the dreaded letter comes, it’s actually already too late.

Verify that you have things under control, get a grasp of potential risks, and validate that no further action is required. A minimal investment now can help you get direct insight into unnecessary costs and risks. Do the health check to make sure you are in control.

PERSONAL DETAILS

RISK CONTROL, COST SAVINGS, AND COST AVOIDANCE

Perhaps you feel you have your affairs in order and just want to know of any potential risks. Or you want to get a full understanding of your compliance position and benefit from optimization and remediation advice. We have a range of software compliance review services to meet your needs.

Compliance Health check

The compliance health check looks at the main elements that indicate whether you run a risk of being non-compliant. We tell you if there is such risk and what causes it. Based on our findings and recommendations you can decide whether you are in need of a deeper analysis to determine the true financial value of that risk.

Compliance analysis

A compliance analysis, aligned with the audit methodology of the vendor, explains your licensing position and reveals the exact amount of your financial exposure. The analysis starts with an entitlement analysis in which we study all your contractual documents to ensure that we know exactly what you have purchased against which terms and conditions. Then we will conduct a deployment and usage analysis to determine how you use the software. This results in a compliance report that shows you any shortage or surplus of licenses and the corresponding financial value.

Remediation & optimization

The compliance analysis provides extremely valuable information to enable optimization and remediation. Existing compliance problems can be remediated which prevents unnecessary costs towards the software publisher.  Direct cost savings can be achieved by optimizing the value of the existing contracts and by terminating unnecessary or costly licenses.

Benefits

  • Insight – get insight in compliance risks and financial exposure
  • Quality – use the same methodology as software vendors do
  • Risk control – validate the maturity of your SAM activities
  • Cost control –  spot opportunities for cost avoidance and cost savings
