New Forrester Research Reveals the High ROI of Software Asset Management

Software costs continue to rise for most companies. A software asset management (SAM) tool will help IT manage those costs but, before implementing such a tool, how can you ensure the investment is wise? The new Forrester Consulting’s Total Economic Impact ™ (TEI) study shows Snow’s SAM solution delivers a 428% ROI. 

In a recent webinar that discussed the results of the TEI study, we joined Sruti Pegatraju (Forrester senior consultant) and Beth Kaminski (Managing partner at Kaminski Specialty Consulting) to examine the three-year impact Snow’s SAM solution delivers in detail. The results are eye-opening:

Breaking down a 428% ROI

To better understand the benefits, costs and risks associated with such an investment, Forrester interviewed four Snow customers in the U.S. and Europe with experience using Snow’s SAM solution. Forrester aggregated the interviewees’ experiences and combined the results into a single composite organization for this study. Take a look at some of the highlights below.

Additional SAM benefits

Beyond these quantifiable benefits, the study also revealed that organizations using Snow’s SAM solution gained several other important benefits including smoother vendor contract negotiations and renewals, enhanced business agility and significantly stronger compliance and security posture. In addition, more flexibility was also discovered, including improved SaaS governance and tighter alignment between IT and the business.
