YES, you can get RoI with SAM Solutions with 3 Golden Rules:

  1. The RoI of your SAM Solution directly comes from its helping you make decisions on you SW spend.
  2. To get immediate benefits, accept to first tackle a limited scope of products, but do it well, with accuracy, from A to Z. And then continue with a second scope of products…
