Use Cases

I have a SAM technology—how do I get the most out of it?

Everyone talks about how SAM tools are supposed to solve your problems, while they play an important role, no one really talks about the challenges they pose. That’s exactly why we created this page.

You’re probably here because you have thought something like:

  • I need a SAM tool, but I don’t know which one is right for me.
  • I bought a SAM tool, but I’m not getting the expected results.
  • My SAM tool data is stale and messy.
  • I could use some extra training and operational help.
  • I’m only able to see parts of my IT landscape and need a complete view.

Do you use any of these tools? We can help!
