Software Asset Management

A fully implemented software asset management (SAM) programme enables you to reduce costs, improve security and compliance, and anticipate future software needs. SAM can also help businesses gain competitive advantage through capturing the costs and benefits associated with IT projects.

Software asset management certifications from BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, address the complexity of this key business practice and provide software asset managers with the skills to implement and maintain an effective SAM programme.

Based on industry best practice, our certifications cover software optimisation across the organisation throughout all the stages of the life cycle, from initial business need up to, and including, retirement. They provide industry recognition of your skills and knowledge - increasingly being demanded by employers as organisations look for ways to streamline costs and services.
