Microsoft SAM Audits

Software Asset Management (SAM) Audits

Audit – it doesn’t have to be a four-letter word that actually contains five letters. Part of our Managed IT Services portfolio includes managing our client’s licensing. Microsoft has gone through some big changes lately, most notably its EOS for Windows 7. Their compliance efforts have increased lately as well which can mean the chance of an audit is very real.

If you’re not sure and your in-house IT guy isn’t 100% sure, it might be time to get some help. Microsoft isn’t kidding around. Their notices are not phishing scams and should be addressed immediately. Failure to do so can result in potential legal action and fines to the tune of $100,000 for your business. This can be door closing to many small and medium sized businesses.

A Software Asset Management (SAM) audit can actually be very helpful. Microsoft wants its consumers to be in compliance and will often offer up new licensing agreements and deals to help companies achieve this. It’s important to be honest and cooperate fully during these audits.
