    Due to resource and time constraints, our customer faced significant ITAM challenges. They needed a dependable partner who could help effectively manage their IT assets.

    Our experts provided insight into potential wastage and aligned financial goals with the company's cost structures. The continuous inventory monitoring facilitated by tools like JDisc enhanced domain visibility, and our quarterly delivery highlight reports allowed the company to focus on core business activities while maintaining updated insight into their IT environment.


    As a result, our customer achieved significant savings of $87K through strategic management and optimization of Microsoft software and data center products.

    An additional savings of $184K was identified for future renewal periods of Microsoft Project. Furthermore, a potential savings range of $450-750k was identified across several Microsoft data center titles, subject to a positive cost-benefit analysis of workload reconfiguration.

    In total, SHI’s ITAM experts helped our customer save up to almost $1M.
