The Gartner® Market Guide for Software Asset Management Tools serves as an essential resource for software sourcing, procurement, and vendor management leaders, offering in-depth guidance to aid in the selection of suitable tools that align with their SAM strategies. Notably, Open iT is listed as a representative vendor in this guide.
As organizations move away from legacy perpetual licensing models and intensify adoption of SaaS tools, the need for a sound, comprehensive, and scalable (SAM) strategy and tools for sourcing, procurement, and vendor management becomes more pronounced. Jaswant Kalay, Ciaran Hudson, and Yolanda Harris, authors of this market guide, have stressed the critical nature of SAM tools in today’s business landscape. They noted, “economic headwinds and the need for greater visibility into software usage have seen Gartner client interest in software asset management tools continue to be of importance.”
We believe this observation highlights the significant role that SAM tools play in helping organizations navigate complex economic challenges while maintaining a clear view of their software assets.
However, the authors also sounded a cautionary note: “SAM tools delivering partial information hinder achieving cost governance, putting SAM teams and their tools at risk of being sidelined.”
Open iT believes this warning further emphasizes the importance of selecting the right SAM solution that can provide comprehensive insights and support cost governance effectively.
