In our Essential trainings we convey the basic principles with the course being specifically tailored for members of staff who are new to Software Asset Management or who simply want to gain a general overview; to increase their own awareness of existing interrelationships and then take these into consideration within their specific area of responsibility.

Within the "SAM BASIC: Achieving a 360° overview" training you will acquire the basic principles of Software Asset Management.

The Advanced training covers the topics from our Basic training at detailed level to enable the attendees to address the topics within their company in a direct and practical way.

The Advanced Level will enable you to analyze and interpret the software license agreements, and apply the SAM principles from a SAM Manager's perspective.

In our expert training we give you special knowledge based on your basic and advanced expertise, which also supports a license manager in the daily business. The trainings include questions of profitability - outsourcing, pooling, value propositions and project management and compliance in SAM, as well as legal and manufacturer specific aspects of licensing and audit cases.

With this training you will become a SAM expert!

The planned training program consists of three levels: Essential Know-how, Advanced Know-how as well as Expert Know-how.
