Software Asset Management (SAM) Services through Kelway
We specialise in assisting organisations to identify and understand the risk and cost implications around licensing of their software portfolio. Software vendors offer a wide variety of licensing models: per device, per CAL, per server, per processor to enable customers to procure their products which, of course, tend to fit their aims rather than the customer’s infrastructure.
When emerging technologies, such as Cloud or VDI are adopted this can make licensing even more complicated. We have developed a portfolio of services that provide clarity on how best to effectively undertake full risk and cost management.
