SAM Process & Controls Audit

SAM Process & Controls Audit

What
P&C Audits investigate the systemic causes of over or under licensing issues as identified (for example, from the CB Audits). Under the ISO 19770 Software Asset Management (SAM) Standards Framework, successful implementation of SAM requires a set of robust processes and controls that are consistently adopted by all stakeholders.

As part of the committee that shapes the definition of these standards, we can benchmark your process against not just ISO itself but also the more relevant real-world best practices .
