What is Software Asset Management
Software asset management (SAM) is a business practice for managing and optimizing software. SAM best practices help you keep track of your software so you always know which asset is running on which computer. And SAM ensures that you have the right number of licenses so you don’t waste money on unnecessary software—or run the risk of license noncompliance.
Who is Software Asset Management For?
SAM provides value to companies of any size or type. A small business with twenty employees can support a SAM program, as well as a government or business with tens of thousands of employees across thousands of locations.

What Is License Compliance?
License compliance means agreeing to abide by the terms of a software license. When you buy software for use on one computer or several networked computers, it comes with a valid license. The license protects the rights of software developers and is enforced by copyright laws.

Risks of Noncompliance
If your software doesn’t have a valid license, it can also lack important documentation, warranty protection, or upgrade options. When you use unlicensed software, you may endanger your company’s reputation and risk incurring civil penalties or other remedies allowed by law.
