You may have been contacted by Microsoft’s Software Asset Management (SAM) Team regarding a compliance report, complete with a complicated looking Excel workbook. This can be scary, we know. Some of us used to be on the other side, so we know how it works. Here are a few things to note to help determine your footing and what you need to do.
First off, you are not being fined. SAM compliance reports are compiled when licensing is suspected to be misallocated, allowing an opportunity to make adjustments. Think of it as a mulligan - you just got one.
