Aspera’s SAM Intelligence empowers high-precision SAM data analytics and visualization

Boston, MA, December 13, 2016 – Aspera, one of the world’s leading providers for Software Asset Management, has released SAM Intelligence, an advanced SAM analytics and reporting solution, creating the future of fast, informed decisions. SAM Intelligence visualizes license development history over any time period, offering a range of business intelligence features which are unrivaled in the SAM industry. 


As part of Aspera’s approach to Strategic SAM, the solution includes a comprehensive selection of key performance indicators (KPIs) based on more than 15 years’ experience and best practice examples. Beyond these out-of-the-box KPIs, customers can quickly and easily combine any SAM data to gain custom insights and so new areas for cost-saving and efficiency.  


“SAM Intelligence gives valuable business insights so stakeholders can identify problems, and reduce financial risk and costs,” said Jochen Hagenlocher, Global Head of SAM for a Fortune 100 company. “SAM Intelligence delivers extensive reporting and analysis options for any licensing position. It enables us to get the most from our data and to present it in graphic detail that is easy to understand.” For building a global SAM practice within 2 years and impressively demonstrating payback, Hagenlocher had been recognized as “ITAM Professional of the Year 2016” by ITAM Review in November. 


“With Aspera’s SAM Intelligence every decision is based on high-quality data,” said Olaf Diehl, Managing Director of Aspera. “Jochen Hagenlocher and his team have shown the benefits of visualizing the value of company-wide SAM. Our customers are speeding up and increasing the return on investment for their SAM programs while reducing complexity.”


The technology works seamlessly with Aspera’s SmartTrack platform, using its license management data as its source for reliable data. As a fully web-based application, SAM Intelligence can run locally in the customer’s data center or as a cloud-based SaaS solution – always with maximum data security – and integrates with any ITSM or ITAM system.
