SAMexpert 
independent Microsoft advisory

We are SAMexpert, a global Cloud Economics and Enterprise Licensing consultancy bridging the gap between traditional licensing and Cloud.

We specialise in Microsoft. Although we also work with other vendors, taking care of Microsoft Cloud Economics and solving Microsoft Licensing puzzles are our core specialities.

We are proud to be 100% independent and radically different. It ensures that our advice is impartial and objective. When we say we're on your side, it's the truth: we don't have any other goals. 

Every expert in our team has 20+ years of experience in our complex industry. We are trusted by clients ranging from start-ups to global Fortune 500 companies. Some of us even used to work for Microsoft. We know our industry inside out. Committed to being open and fair, we will guide you too.

Our leaders' passion is working with people. We help you succeed by maximising the value of your investment in software and Cloud while growing your business free of disruptions.

What 
do we do, exactly?

Our services are designed around the challenges our clients are facing.

Financial Planning for Cloud migration

Migration from on-premise to Azure, AWS, GCP often incurs unexpected, unnecessary costs. We ensure that you benefit from all cost reduction options by planning ahead and intelligently re-using your existing licenses.

Microsoft 365 Planning and Optimisation

Microsoft 365 offers a range of bundled plans and individual components. It's easy to get lost in detail and overlook the value gap. We shall assess and plan your requirements and benchmark the best suitable options to ensure that you only pay for what you need.

Microsoft EA and CSP Negotiations

Microsoft's "New Commerce Experience" is dramatically transforming how its licensing agreements work. Our expert negotiators will guide you through the uncertain landscape, benchmark discounts, leverage new opportunities, and help you strike the best possible deal.

Microsoft SPLA Audit Defence

Services Provider audit is a painful and frustrating experience. Our SPLA experts have defended clients in audits with up to $300M claimed shortfalls. We apply our trusted methodology forged in battles so you can sail through the next audit or turn the tide in an ongoing one.
