Cost savings. Some large consulting firms say that SAM programs can save 25%-30% of total software spend by aligning software spend with actual software needs. Greater use of SaaS applications also presents a wonderful opportunity to optimize software spend based on actual usage of the SaaS applications. Naturally this requires that you know the usage of your SaaS applications such as Adobe CC and others. This is where Belarc's patented technology on usage discovery really helps.
Compliance. Software publishers are auditing their customers more frequently and having an effective SAM tool and program in place will allow you to respond in a timely and accurate manner based on actual data, and not be forced to rely on the auditor's data. This is where Belarc's accurate and up to data discovery data and automated license compliance reporting are invaluable tools.
Cyber security. Belarc's system not only discovers the installed and used software and version details, but also the software vulnerabilities for the major vendors.
The right information out of the box. Belarc offers an automated and integrated SAM system that includes Discovery, Normalization, Effective License Position and License Optimization. This is in contrast to our competition who rely on operations and security tools such as SCCM, ADDM, BigFix, etc. to do SAM Discovery. Since these operations and security tools were not designed for SAM they do not discover the metrics that you need for effective SAM. No amount of Normalization will solve this, if the needed data is not being discovered.
These tools also do not discover application usage, which is necessary to optimize SaaS and other software. For example usage data for Adobe SaaS software is not available from the vendor, but Belarc discovers this automatically.
Fast deployment. Even our large enterprise customers are up and running within weeks, not months or years as is the case with our competition.
Automation. Belarc's system is based on a cloud architecture using secure web protocols. This allows for for the need of only a single server and central database for the entire enterprise. This architecture avoids the need to deploy, manage and maintain multiple scanners, servers and databases. Click here for details.
Belarc's system includes Discovery, Normalization, Effective License Position and License Optimization all in one integrated system. This is in contrast to our competition who rely on many different operations and security tools for discovery data and then try to decide which data is accurate or missing.
