  • (1888PressRelease) April 12, 2012 - Philadelphia, PA - RES Software, a proven leader in dynamic desktop solutions, today announced it has attained Software Asset Management (SAM) competency from Microsoft Corp. SAM is only achieved by demonstrating a "best-in-class" ability to meet the evolving needs of Microsoft's customers in today's dynamic business environment, and distinguishes RES Software within the top one percent of Microsoft's partner ecosystem. To award this accreditation, Microsoft validated the experiences of several of their customers who implemented a SAM process using RES Software tools.

    SAM competency goes far beyond simple license validation by making sure that the software an organization acquires is used properly, is safe, and comes from legitimate and trusted suppliers. Because software is a strategic asset for an organization, it is critical that it is acquired from legitimate resources and retired accurately, using effective inventory techniques. Microsoft and RES Software customers are using tools such as RES Baseline Desktop Analyzer and RES Workspace Manager as part of their best practices, incorporating proven processes for managing and optimizing their organizations' software investments.

    "This is a great achievement for RES Software, as it shows the trust that customers have in our technology as a means of managing their software inventories," said Gene Bonacci, VP Channels and Strategic Alliances, RES Software. "The most important thing for our customers is that they are offered a robust solution that can help them navigate complex dynamic desktop environments safely and securely. SAM recognition demonstrates how RES Software products can provide high value to enterprise IT departments."

    Attaining the SAM competency demonstrates partner expertise in software asset and license management services to organizations of all sizes, from small businesses to large enterprises. Equipped with exclusive training and the latest software and support, customers are able to significantly reduce the total cost of software ownership, improve operational efficiencies and more effectively manage assets.
    "RES Software helps customers extend the functionality of System Center," said Ian Carlson, Director of Marketing, Server and Infrastructure, Microsoft Corp. "Software Asset Management helps ensure that our customers are using safe, legitimate, and properly licensed software as part of their IT asset portfolio. RES Software technology helps organizations implement the processes and procedures for managing software assets, which is a critical part of the success of SAM."

    RES Software will be demonstrating its solutions recognized by the SAM competency at the Microsoft Management Summit, beginning on April 16 in Las Vegas at booth 409.
