  • 1. Software Asset Management System (SAMS) at Sandia National Laboratories June 12, 2007 Ramona Gallegos Programmer/Analyst, Org. 04342 SAMS Project Lead Sandia is a multiprogram laboratory operated by Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin Company, for the United States Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration under contract DE-AC04-94AL85000.
  • 2.
    • A system designed to treat software as an asset
    • It has two high level goals:
      • Allow for tracking of software licenses in which Sandia has an interest
      • Enable reapplication of software licenses across the enterprise
    What is SAMS?
  • 3. Why SAMS?
    • Budget, accountability, licensing compliance
    • Inventory is key to management of software assets
    • Management of software assets requires
      • knowledge of annual maintenance or software assurance costs
      • knowledge of the number of licenses you own and can apply
      • knowledge of how the software assets are in use in the enterprise
      • the ability to reapply these assets across the enterprise
  • 4. SAMS Current State
    • Currently able to register a software license and associate people and/or machines with that license
      • Some of the information recorded includes purchase cost, maintenance cost, expiration dates, number of seats, license ownership, secondary use rights
    • Accomplished using existing infrastructure configuration items in Sandia’s NetWork Information System (NWIS)
      • People
      • Machines
      • Organizations
      • Projects
      • Vendors
  • 5. SAMS Permissions
    • One of the first questions is who will manage software
    • Currently there are two permission levels
      • CSU Personnel and System Administrators
        • Can associate people/machines with software licenses
      • SAMS Administrators
        • Can add/edit/delete software, software versions, software licenses
        • Can associate people/machines with software licenses
    • The SAMS Administrators must create the software and license in SAMS before it can be associated with people and/or machines
  • 6. SAMS in Use at Sandia
    • SAMS is in use at Sandia for a variety of purposes
      • to track the machines associated with MSDN licenses so that these machines are excluded from the annual count of machines subject to Microsoft licensing fees
      • to track the people using a seat (or multiple seats) under a 500-seat Dreamweaver license
      • to track the people using a seat under a SmartDraw 100-seat license, and recover the cost of the license from each person
      • to track the software installed on Sandia owned machines at the Yucca Mountain Project (YMP)
  • 7. SAMS Overview
