SAM Baseline

If you are dealing with the matter of license conformity for the first time, you might quickly lose sight of the big picture. In addition, if an audit is upcoming, a True Up is about to take place or the acquisition of outside companies is occurring, there is also the factor of time pressure.

To overcome this and keep the situation under control is not so simple. A preliminary license balance sheet can usually not be realized nor have its plausibility validated on the basis of the existing database. To make a truly qualified statement about the underlicensing or overlicensing is surely not a trivial matter.

SAM Baseline takes care of transparency and security

Tool-supported, we will create for you a license balance sheet on the basis of your asset inventories, achieve the necessary degree of transparency, and master, together with you, the pending True Up and lastly, give you a good grasp of operational license management.

After a careful stocktaking of your installed software portfolio as well as the available rights of use, you will receive a detailed overview of your license portfolio and the demand associated with it. Based on the competent findings of our Compliance Division, you will afterwards be able to realize potential cost savings ((overlicensing)) or close compliance gaps (underlicensing).

As part of the baseline project, we place the highest demands on the comprehensiveness of the data. Our goal is the cataloguing and accounting of at least 95% of your assets in order to be able to make a comprehensive statement about the degree of your license conformity.

Establish your software portfolio quite precisely and structure it anew. In addition, you can profit from our team’s comprehensive expert knowledge and also apply this profitably in subsequent processes.

<p style="text-align: center;">Your OEM client operating system,</p>

<p style="text-align: center;">Your individual and volume licenses,</p>
