This survey has been kindly sponsored by Livingstone Technologies.

Commenting on the survey, Matt Fisher, CCO at Livingstone said:

“There is a widely-acknowledged global shortage in SAM skills.  It’s a challenge that cannot be addressed solely by tools or automation: there is a need for skilled individuals to interpret data, apply their specialist licensing or data processing knowledge and ‘sell’ the benefits to the organization.

We are committed to promoting the awareness of – and need for – skilled SAM practitioners.  At the same time, we firmly believe that SAM is not one skill, but a collection of disparate capabilities that must be combined to create an effective SAM function. 

We hope this survey will help raise the profile of the SAM function as well as help SAM practitioners themselves identify opportunities to better work together, overcome skills shortages and drive increased value to the organization.”


Thanks in advance for your help. Martin
