Aspera Ranks in Top “Customer Choice Zone” for Gartner Peer Insights
Original 2018 article updated: February 2019
Last month, Gartner announced the best Software Asset Management Tools of 2019 as reviewed by customers.
Aspera is excited to announce that we have been recognized as a2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Software Asset Management Tools.
The Aspera team takes great pride in this distinction, as customer feedback continues to shape our software license management products and services.
In its announcement, Gartner explains, “The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice is a recognition of vendors in this market by verified end-user professionals, taking into account both the number of reviews and the overall user ratings.” To ensure fair evaluation, Gartner maintains rigorous criteria for recognizing vendors with a high customer satisfaction rate.
What are software asset management tools?
According to the Gartner Peer Insights website:
Software asset management (SAM) tools automate many of the tasks required to maintain compliance with software licenses, thereby controlling software spending. They facilitate the in-depth analysis of software assets by decoding software license entitlements, automating the collection of software consumption data, establishing independent software vendor (ISV) effective license position (ELP), and optimizing software value delivery and information sharing. SAM tools manage entitlements from enterprise license agreements, purchases and other records to automatically determine and optimize license position against discovered software. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders use SAM tools for managing software entitlement, in lieu of using spreadsheets, due to the rising complexity of software-licensing schemes.
