SAM Baseline

Overview on the consecutive steps of SAM Baseline:

The kick-off workshop instills the starting point for a successful project, in which all software decision-makers and stakeholders create a common understanding of the objectives to be achieved.

For the creation of the license balance, two sides need to be involved: Inventory of all existing licenses and contracts with the vendors.

To determine the best possible commercial result, all possible user rights are applied within the consolidation phase in order to achieve the maximum optimization.

At the end of this project, the final license balance report showing optimization possibilities and concrete recommendations will be handed over.

Congratulations – You have accomplished it!

The inventory of used software products delivered by our discovery & inventory product, RayVentory, creates an optimal basis for future project work. High quality data obtained during inventory is essential and will guarantee success during the project. With a recognition rate of almost 90%, we ensure that all software requiring licensing is accounted for.

The comparison of both databases with the collected information represents a preliminary license balance from which the first risks and potentials can already be derived.

During the next step, the inventory data will be compared with the installed software products and the license requirements resulting from the use of the products, and the result will be documented in a final report.

Smarter Software and Hardware Inventory

RayVentory offers comprehensive hardware and software scans either with an agent or through Zero-Touch agentless technology. It is a web or USB-pen drive which enables the discovery and inventory of computer devices, VMware, Hyper-V hosts and Oracle database instances.

It provides a smart scan and data gathering of physical and virtual devices at low costs as well as comprehensive reports about hardware, software, VMware, Hyper-V and Oracle database servers. In addition RayVentory removes barriers of complex IT infrastructures and possible limitations of the Works Council allowing data gathering initiated by the end user himself.

It provides intelligent scanning and data collection of physical and virtual devices at low cost, followed by comprehensive reporting on hardware, software, VMware, Hyper-V and Oracle database servers.

RayVentory also helps overcome the barriers and limitations imposed by regulatory requirements, for example, by allowing users to take the initiative to collect their own data.

High transparency and performance diversity with our SAM tools

Any license that is not included in license management – and whose product usage rights are not accurately catalogued – prevents effective planning and ultimately reduces the value of software asset management. At the same time, the risk of not passing a software audit increases, often resulting in severe financial and legal consequences.

With our software asset management tools, companies can control their ever-increasing software portfolios.
