It involves integrating disparate tools into a cohesive ecosystem, establishing data synchronization mechanisms, automating workflows, and ensuring seamless communication between different ITAM systems to enable holistic asset management and decision-making.

ServiceNow SAM Pro

Many organizations are in the process of migrating existing asset management capabilities into the ServiceNow platform and strive to optimize their usage of the vast capabilities this platform offers. Our team can help analyze your legacy systems and provide a detailed roadmap enabling a seamless transition to ServiceNow. This includes working with stakeholders to develop a baseline assessment of the organization, documenting to-be state functional requirements for the platform, and assisting in both the technical migration support and ServiceNow licensing analysis to transition to the new environment. Our team uses a vendor agnostic approach to ensure our clients only pay for what is needed. Additional value is created by capturing savings through decommissioning legacy software and thus freeing up investment into enhanced ServiceNow capabilities.

Our Approach

We understand the intricacies of governmental SAM. Effective management of commercial software licenses can help organizations avoid purchasing too many licenses that result in unused software. In addition, effective management can help avoid purchasing too few licenses, which may result in noncompliance with license terms and cause the imposition of additional fees and costly audits.

Our approach involves a thorough analysis of all software vendors owned and deployed on government IT infrastructure. We baseline licensing with a meticulous report aligning licensing to actual usage and deliver an Effective License Position (ELP) for all priority vendors in scope. The result is a snapshot of opportunities and risks relevant to all software owned and deployed. This includes both on-premises infrastructure and cloud-hosted systems.
