SAM Baseline
Assessment

Know the ins and outs of your licenses to make the best decisions.

Identifying and understanding the status of each license – deployed or not – is the first step of any Software Asset Management (SAM) program…and that’s where SHI’s Baseline Assessment comes into play.

As a one-time, single or multi-vendor snapshot, our Baseline builds the base for your entire SAM program by highlighting compliance risks and providing expert advice on how to prevent overspending, increase software compliance and streamline your SAM processes.

Each Baseline consists of a three-step process:

Entitlement Position

Deployment Position

Compliance Review

Analyze your license reports and understand what software you’re entitled to deploy
Learn how your licenses are deployed across your entire organization
Identify your compliance risks and create a recommended action plan

Benefits of the SAM Baseline:

  • Additional insight into deployed software organization-wide
  • Compliance for entire license environment
  • Reduced spending
  • Streamlined procurement process
  • Mitigate audit risks
  • Dedicated ITAM team
