Companies spend more and more on software every year. And every year it gets more and more difficult for companies to keep track of the software they own or maintain a clear understanding of the business value it provides. Software Asset Management (SAM) tools address these challenges, allowing companies to rationalize software portfolios and optimize operational efficiency.

Selecting the best SAM tool for your needs, however, can be overwhelming. Vendors offer a wide range of tools – at varying price points – that feature a dizzying array of capabilities.

We believe Gartner Market Guide for SAM Tools helps leaders in IT, sourcing, procurement, and vendor management sort through and compare the many options. It can provide useful guidance, both in terms of thinking through your decision criteria and finding the solution that best meets your needs.
