Software Asset Management (SAM) provides better insight into software usage and value, reduces inaccurate licensing of software and improves overall system and data security. According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global SAM Market is expected to reach approximately USD 2.45 Billion by 2023 growing at a ~14.18% CAGR over the forecast period 2018-2023.
This rapid growth paired with the complexity of managing numerous technologies with different deployment models, licensing agreements, budgets, and ownership across disparate departments creates challenges in effectively managing software vendors and licensing costs.

With unparalleled experience from thought leaders who have set up and led SAM departments for Fortune 100 companies, Connor helps mitigate IT supplier risks and realize material cost savings.
