Quantifying ROI: Building the Business Case for IT and Software Asset Management
Source: Express Metrix
In the present competitive business environment, companies are realizing they can no longer afford to treat IT and Software Asset Management (IT/SAM) as an initiative to implement "When time allows." It is rapidly becoming a strategic imperative compelled by the need to keep IT costs in line and manage the risk associated with IT assets, while achieving maximum value from existing and future IT investments. Gartner Research validates this trend, estimating that "Enterprises that systematically manage the life cycle of their IT assets will reduce cost per asset by as much as 30 percent during the first year, and between 5 percent and 10 percent annually during the next five years."
