This service offering is free to certain organizations through the Microsoft SAM Services program.
Discovering what software your organization has in use can be a difficult and time consuming task. Reconciling this information to complex and ever changing licensing rules can seem next to impossible.
An Inviso SAM Baseline engagement can efficiently and accurately give your organization a snap shot of where you are over-licensed and where you are under-licensed product by product. During the engagement, we can also share our methods and techniques so that you can repeat this process on your own moving forward.
Inviso SAM consultants are recognized as among the best in the world for their expertise in automated software discovery and licensing knowledge (particularly for Microsoft and Adobe licensing).
Inviso can leverage your existing discovery tools by ensuring their configuration is optimal, or can recommend free and commercial solutions if no discovery tool is currently deployed in your environment. Inviso are recognized leaders in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, Essentials, Intune and the free Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit. See our "Inviso - SAM Deployment Planning Services" offering for more details.
Customers benefit from this service in several ways:
- Save money: Avoid over purchasing licenses
- Save time: Gain a wealth of IT inventory and operational data during the SAM Baseline process that can be used for other IT initiatives (e.g. upgrade or migration planning)
- Get more sleep: Through better management of compliance risk.
