Automate your Software Asset Management process.

Automate your Software Asset Management process.

Why is SAM so difficult today?

Software Asset Management (SAM) is a process consisting of people, processes and tools. The way that SAM is mostly practiced today consists of many manual steps involving discovery and normalization from many different tools, consultants and in-house people.

Flow chart titled "consultants and tool vendor services". The first item, called "existing data sources for discovery", flows into second item called, "normalize, consolidate, software catalog." This item flows into third item called "SLM engine & reports." A fourth item, called "Entitlements", also flows into the third item.
Flow chart with two divided categories titled "consultants and tool vendor services". The two categories are called "usage" and "entitlements." Items 1 and 2 are grouped in the usage category. Item 4 is in the entitlements category. Items 3 is in both categories. The first item, called "existing data sources for discovery", flows into second item called, "normalize, consolidate, software catalog." This item flows into third item called "SLM engine & reports." Item three also flows back to the first item. A fourth item, called "Entitlements", also flows into the third item.

Existing discovery tools are not designed for SAM

Existing discovery tools do not automatically discover the right products and metrics that are needed for SAM. This requires the SAM group to constantly go back to the operations group to get the discovery data they need to match their entitlement data. In addition important information such as SaaS usage is not available from the existing operations tools.

Belarc's Approach

Automate and Integrate

Belarc’s approach is to automate and integrate the steps of discovery, normalization, and Software License Management Reporting.

Flow chart titled "No consultants needed." The first item, called "discovery", flows into second item called, "normalize." This item flows into third item called "SLM engine & reports." A fourth item, called "Entitlements", also flows into the third item.
Flow chart with two divided categories. The two categories are called "usage" and "entitlements." Items 1 and 2 are grouped in the usage category. Item 4 is in the entitlements category. Items 3 is in both categories. The first item, called "Belarc discovery", flows into second item called, "integrated normalization." This item flows into third item called "SLM engine & reports." A fourth item, called "Entitlements", also flows into the third item.

Better data, better SAM optimization

The result is a system that automatically discovers the right software metrics and usage data and links that to the entitlement data.
