When Strategy & Cost Leadership Combine
Beautiful things can happen.
Business apps are the strategic link from business to IT. Apps are IT’s most important asset/digital product.
Yet both optimized application costs & efficient business app alignment remain elusive for most organizations.
Technology advances have reduced the ‘barrier of entry’ to solve both concerns with increasing efficiency.
Substantial & real ROI’s are available to companies leveraging both APM & SAM solutions & services. Projects are becoming ‘no-brainers’ for most organizations of scale.
SAM + APM
two halves of one whole
Application Estate Management
How much you own of each app: reduces SW maintenance, reduces audit risk for owned software.
With only SAM, you reduce your license spend but on software that you may not need to begin with.
What apps are in your environment: reduces application redundancy and cost.
With only APM, you are still likely paying too much for remaining apps and are still at risk of audit.
Maps software licenses purchased to actual usage & determines compliance.
Automation provides effective license position and reduces audit response time and penalties.
Improves negotiation power throughout software renewal process.
Technology provides increased automation for license usage visibility & management.
Reduce overall # of applications -> reduces SW maintenance & support costs
Removes redundant software functionality from environment
Provides non-contentious framework for engaging business and deciding on investments & divestitures
