Software Asset Management (SAM) Tools Reviews and Ratings

What are SAM Tools?

Software asset management (SAM) tools automate many of the tasks required to maintain compliance with software licenses, thereby controlling software spending. They facilitate the in-depth analysis of software assets by decoding software license entitlements, automating the collection of software consumption data, establishing independent software vendor (ISV) effective license position (ELP), and optimizing software value delivery and information sharing. SAM tools manage entitlements from enterprise license agreements, purchases and other records to automatically determine and optimize license position against discovered software. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders use SAM tools for managing software entitlement, in lieu of using spreadsheets, due to the rising complexity of software-licensing schemes.

"Excellent once up and running!"

The product set, once installed, is stable and works operationally without much assistance. The deployed agents are extremely reliable and I can't recall having a single incident created for and agent issue in over two years of running over 100,000 seats. The volume of integrations is very convenient allowing for multiple integrations operating seamlessly on a fairly tight schedule. Having a Customer Success Manager who is responsive, honest and open about capabilities and to take on board new suggestions is key to driving the best value from the platform and ensuring that priority is raised on support cases where necessary,

"Excellent Value from Services and Enterprise Class Technology "

Working with Aspera, from both a consulting and technology provider perspective, has been very easy and always given us an excellent return on our investment. Starting with a Rapid Vendor Analysis helped us to create a solid, proven ROI for the purchase of Smart Track, and also helped with the tactical renewal that was in progress. Smart Track was a clear choice for us as we had lots of data sources that needed to be rationalized and normalized, and it meant we weren't forced to spend more money on yet another discovery technology to allow us to bring the data into a SAM tool. Since implementing the tool, in just the first six months of use after vendor onboarding, we have identified more than $2M in savings across three of our top vendors. It's also allowed us to engage with our stakeholder partners in new ways, where we an bring them valuable insights through the data which we provide in the form of alerts, reporting, dashboards and more.

"Excellent Product - My favourite network tool"

I love LanSweeper, I have used other similar tools, but none have been as powerful. Any product where I can create custom SQL queries always gets a big thumbs up from me. I love the fact there are lots of default SQL queries where you only need modify a word or 2, to get it to do what you want. The amount of information pulled back from the tooling is vast.

"The tool is assisting us with getting an understanding of our software compliance."

The tool seems to do things very well. Our struggle has been to feed it the correct data. While providing the electronic discovery of software installations is great, our issue is now to get all of the correct data into the system, so we can achieve value from it. We are in the process of getting our contracts, software models and entitlements created to bring everything together. We are also still learning our the normalization works to tie our data to the electronic data automatically so that the dashboards light up properly.

"Implementation was completed with time to spare in the project shedule."

The product worked well 'right out of the box'. A few small issues during our deployment: 1. MAC client deployment. 2. Data transfer from the AD connector was also an issue These issues were due to our choice of deployment technology and size of our Active Directory structure not the product. A few tweaks and everything burst into life. Initially not really designed around some of our deployment platforms, Snow worked with us and our deployment system vendor to rectify some recognition issues we were having. A great company that listens to, and responds to Customer feedback.

"Powerful Virtualization tool with cloud based."

Although virtualization provides numerous possible advantages to the enterprise, it also poses major obstacles for successful security, licensing and enforcement management. Modern licensing includes physical or virtual system configurations and applications on which it is implemented, however data center licensing frameworks extend beyond the real physical or virtual computer on which the security is mounted.
