MBA IT has amassed significant experience in a broad range of areas of Software Asset Management (SAM) and licensing consultancy. We are well positioned to work closely with you to ensure that you are not just compliant, but managing your licensing estate in the most cost effective manner even in complex virtualised, cloud or mixed environments.
Many IT departments focus on Microsoft licensing, and clearly due to the predominance of their products within most organisations this is an essential area. However we can help you co-ordinate your licensing across Symantec, Oracle, Adobe, VMware, Citrix, Computer Associates, Network Associates, Lotus and many other brands. Of course we also provide a full service for Microsoft.
Whether you are just about to embark on a full software licensing audit, or you just need some impartial advice to confirm you are achieving best value, we would be happy to utilise our experience and manufacturer relationships to help you achieve this.
Our SAM services can be provided as a one-off consultancy project, or as a managed service to ensure ongoing compliance without any administrative overhead to your busy IT staff. Our consultants will deliver a comprehensive licensing report, provide recommendations which will allow you to implement robust processes to ensure both compliance and asset optimisation, help you manage your assets through proactive monitoring, and if required, design and configure automated asset management and inventory tools to ensure you have access to live data and reporting across your estate however large and distributed.
In addition our experience SAM consultants can help you ensure your processes meet or exceed best practice recommendations and frameworks from Microsoft, ITIL and ISO-19770.
