You purchased a SAM tool, installed it, so now you can sit back and relax, right? We would recommend to not do that right away. Then what, you might ask? In order to make sure the tool is working in your favor, it must be set up correctly, but also continuously managed.
However, even with a perfectly maintained tool that can automatically collect a portion of the required data, you shouldn’t fall in the trap of leaving it like that. No SAM tool can determine your complete license position on its own, and that’s why you need specialist licensing knowledge to properly manage it.
Our advice? Manage it seriously right from the beginning, but don’t fully rely on it. This way you make sure you stay compliant and prevent unnecessary costs.
