Why not just do nothing?

Why not just do nothing?

That is a good question, why don’t you just forget about what software you have deployed and what you might have paid for and just continue as you are? Just pretend that those expensive software assets manage themselves and you don’t need to worry about the vendors finding out that you’ve been using things you shouldn’t. How are the vendors going to know that you paid for 50 licenses but are now using closer to 200, surely, they’ll never find out? Oh, but they will find out and when they do you’ll be staring down the barrel of a very large fine.

 

As you know we really like to criticise the vendors for their complicated license metrics and we enjoy teasing those dreadful resellers -who disguise themselves as saviours but behave more like saboteurs – but when it comes to turning a blind eye to software deployment then the vendors really do have a point. You wouldn’t go into Sainsbury’s and pay for 6 Kit Kats but take home 16, so it’s time to stop ignoring Software Asset Management and take control of the wild, wild west that is your estate. Now, this task might seem daunting and you might not know where to start? If this is the case, the right thing to do is email nofear@samcraft.co.uk and one of the team will be in touch to help you work your way out of the mess you’ve gotten yourself into, to paraphrase a famous team of paranormal investigators “we’re ready to believe you”.
