1 Softline SAM solutions maximum order at minimum cost!

2 72% of worldwide IT costs refer to maintenance of existing IT infrastructure 42% IT infrastructure maintenance 30% Application maintenance 23% Application modernization 5% Infrastructure development Figure 1. Typical enterprise IT budget cost structure. Source: IDC

3 IT infrastructure cost management brings profits Try one of the standard SAM implementation solutions offered by Softline. Standardized approach, fixed terms and price allow you to evaluate the benefits of SAM and solve the most acute problems in the field of software assets that are specific for your company.

4 Competent contractor provides IT cost savings The result of IT cost optimization in the company can be from 5% to 30% savings on IT budget in the first year and around 5% in the second and the third years. IT cost economy depending on the type of implemented SAM project 5% 10% 30% SAM Baseline/SAM Cybersecurity/SAM Cloud Ready/SAM Virtualization and SQL SAM Box Complete SAM project

5 SAM Box SAM Box is an ideal solution for quick start of the SAM implementation project and assessment of the current situation in the field of software asset utilization Minimal client labor costs you follow step-by-step information collection guidelines, and we provide an end result. Fixed cost and terms. Ready-to-use software inventory toolkit. Three types of projects that differ in the degree of client involvement and result display form. It is possible to analyze software assets from various vendors.

6 SAM Baseline SAM Baseline includes complete inventory of Microsoft software on user PCs and servers, and also presumes thorough licensing analysis for all groups of software assets Softline provides recommendation on licensing optimization taking into account the IT infrastructure development strategy. You receive a report about the key opportunities of IT asset cost reduction (redundant licensing), legal risk elimination and ROI improvement. Easy-to-use tool for IT infrastructure analysis.

7 SAM Cybersecurity Absence of streamlined SAM processes causes many threats to corporate IT infrastructure. Counterfeit software can contain malicious code, and outof-date software can have vulnerabilities You receive a report about potential security threats caused by counterfeit and out-of-date software. You will get a complete list of installed software and its versions We assess your IT infrastructure and SAM processes from the security point of view.

8 SAM Cloud Ready Development of cloud technologies can reduce IT infrastructure maintenance costs and increase its flexibility. During this project, Softline will assess your cloud readiness. 1 2 Comprehensive software inventory allows to develop cloud migration plans. Analysis of potential cost savings due to migration of applications to the data center and abandoning the obsolete local infrastructure.

9 SAM Virtualization and SQL Often less attention is given to data center and server licensing than to user software, but in this field the risks of insufficient amount or inappropriate type of licenses are usually very high. They can be related to VM migration, deployment of test virtual servers, insufficient control over distributed IT infrastructure You will receive recommendations for improvement of virtual infrastructure licensing (including using SQL in virtual environments). We will also help you to optimize server infrastructure from the technical point of view. This project allows to start accounting software assets without laborconsuming inventory of user PCs.

10 SAM projects comprehensive approach to IT project management What does the SAM project include? 01 Selection of inventory tool: we can choose the optimal inventory tool taking into account your unique business features or make the most of the existing ones. 02 Inventory: we analyze the software on user PCs, servers, as well as the relations between them, and provide a summary report following the results of the survey. 03 Legal analysis: we compare the purchased and used licenses and perform comprehensive legal risk analysis basing on the contract documentation. 04 Organization of asset management processes: we review the softwarerelated internal regulations, procedures and instructions and suggest how to improve them 05 Certification for compliance to international standards. 06 SAM and IT consulting: depending on the client business requirements, we solve the tasks of IT service delivery, maintenance and management and help clients to elaborate their IT strategy.

11 The advantages of SAM projects SAM project benefits from the IT point of view Assessment of the current situation in the field of corporate software Legal risk reduction Documentary proof of license purity Consulting in the field of IT strategy Rational use of existing licenses Precise calculation of prices and competences in software sales SAM project benefits from the business point of view IT cost transparency Discover what your employees are really doing on their working place Transparent IT financing structure Economic security Opinion on software use reasonability Project cost calculation
