Data Quality & Migration

Your SAM success depends on rock-solid data and DQM

Our Data Quality Guarantee

Good data drives an audit — we make sure yours is airtight

The quality of your software license data means the difference between saving and spending. Data is complex and interdependent, and a flawed database can be painful to unravel. If the data isn’t accurate, then the license optimization results won’t be either.

That’s why Aspera ensures that your SAM operation uses correct and complete data. With our platform and services, you know the data is clean and accurate, and you can trust the numbers that you see.

Data Quality: Get rock-solid analysis

Our SAM solution, Aspera SmartTrack, ensures the highest Data Quality Management (DQM). The platform offers user-friendly monitoring and analysis of all the data for all of your devices.

You can immediately see what data has been processed, what was missed, and why. SmartTrack checks all critical data issues, then provides insight into the quality and how to improve it. And SmartTrack has a rock-solid foundation to improve the data in related SAM systems such as the CMDB.

Got DQM? SmartTrack gives you:

Don't have DQM? Here's what happens:

  • Verifies imported data automatically = Trust your data points
  • License purchases aren’t recorded = Licensing costs are incorrect
  • Warns when/what data is missing = Get accurate license compliance
  • Organization info is inaccurate = Cost breakdowns are incorrect
  • Displays status of each record = Immediately know your inventory
  • Hardware data is incomplete = Licensing requirements are incorrect
  • Pinpoints data discrepancies = Read reports instead of log files
  • Reference prices are missing = Financial forecasting is incorrect

 

Data Migration: When two (or more) become one

Your data migration project can be huge, with hundreds of data sources, especially if your company is enterprise level. Whether you are migrating 4 or 400 data sources, 500 or 50,000 license purchases, 20,000 or 20,000,000 installation registries – it’s essential to have high quality results.
