The role of the software asset manager in the company is changing. These changes depend on the structures of the company. In some companies there are established SAM managers, in other companies it has to be built up first. It is mostly a dynamic environment. In defining the role of the SAM manager, the license must be rethought as a product and a management of the licenses must be developed from this thinking. In this way, a software license management can be developed and from this a SAM management. For companies that already have an established SAM management, it is not a big deal, but for companies that are newly developing and establishing a SAM management, it is a big deal – and this is the case for Netflix. Establishing SAM management changes an organization’s infrastructure and SAM brings more dynamism to the enterprise.
