Our global team of SAM professionals and software licensing experts, backed-up with our own in-house optimization technologies, help organizations with limited or no in-house SAM resources overcome skills shortages and tool gaps, delivering timely, reliable and actionable SAM intelligence that drives bottom-line savings.

Livingstone’s award-winning managed services are designed to increase the cost-efficiency, speed of delivery and success of managing software across all platforms: whether on-premise, migrating to the cloud or in hybrid cloud environments. Optimization, audit defense and cloud migration projects are provided for all major vendors, including Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, VMware, SAP and more.

Livingstone’s zero-friction approach to optimizing software licensing encompasses a unique blend of technologies, people and processes in a single proposition that delivers fast and significant results for customer organizations.

Our customers are our greatest advocates, representing some of the world’s most respected brands including Verizon, Citibank, BT, Nissan and UBS to name but a few.
