The analysis will be the basis for the evaluation of the Customer’s overall Cloud-ready state in relation to their Cloud strategy, providing insights on the business, licensing and technology benefits to moving some or all workloads to the Cloud. The analysis will also lead to the ability to provide recommendations to optimize Cloud licensing as well as SAM policies, procedures and processes to facilitate their Cloud strategy and implementation. The data will be gathered by the Partner who will perform a full discovery and inventory outlining all Microsoft product deployments, usage, and entitlements. The Partner will use third party tools, interviews with key customer stakeholders, as well as other sources, to capture all relevant data. During data analysis, use of work-space is required to generate reports to provide customers with a quality and consistent SAM engagement experience. Finally, with the full data collected during the engagement, the Partner will provide recommendations on additional uses of the data to show customers how to get more value from the SAM engagement.
