OVERVIEW

Learn to manage the software asset life cycle from planning to disposal.

This three-day training course aims to introduce you to the ServiceNow® Software Asset Management Professional product and familiarize you with techniques and best practices for creating and managing software assets throughout their lifecycle. The session format will alternate between discussions and labs giving you an opportunity to explore the application and apply the concepts learned.

Software Asset Management (SAM) is a company's strategy for managing software license use rights to maintain software compliance to publisher contractual obligations. The Software Asset Management Professional product facilitates the tracking, evaluation, and management of software license rights, compliance, and optimization.

Working in conjunction with other ServiceNow platform products, software license rights can be requested, procured, managed to software contracts, allocated to users or devices, and reclaimed. Software installations can be discovered, normalized, and reconciled to software products, models, entitlements and allocations to quickly identify the software license position.

ServiceNow® Software Asset Management Professional is a 3-day course taught both as Instructor-led training (ILT) and Virtual Instructor-led training (VILT) in multiple time zones throughout the world.

Multiple demonstrations are provided throughout the course to aid students in visualizing the lecture concepts.

Though classroom discussion will occur throughout the course, several specific discussion points have been identified within the course to aid students in increasing comprehension of the material as well as to aid in applying the concepts learned to their individual roles and organizations.

Extensive hands-on exercises are included with each course module to reinforce the lecture concepts

and provide practical experience. An optional Software Asset Management Professional simulated environment will be available on day three to each student, as desired. The simulator contains a number of platform tasks that have been covered in the course and will be used to help students validate their end-to-end lifecycle comprehension of ServiceNow® Software Asset Management Professional.

Several instructor-led group activities such as knowledge checks, concept reviews, and open discussions are embedded throughout the course flow. Participants can validate their newly acquired knowledge as well as benefit from real-life business scenarios shared by fellow students.

At the end of the course, students will receive a voucher that enables them, if desired, to take the exam to become a ServiceNow® Certified Software Asset Management Implementer.

Unlike ServiceNow Fundamentals, which have a broader focus on the platform, the ServiceNow Software Asset Management Professional Fundamentals course is focused on providing attendees with the skills necessary to implement and administer the features, functionality, and data necessary for managing software assets within ServiceNow.
