Mark Bonham, ARUP (Softcat)
Advocate level: SNOW HERO
Advocate of the Month: November 2017
“I’m a former professional soldier and now a twenty-year veteran (and counting) of hardware & software management. I’ve worked at ARUP (for Softcat) for the past three years, and have worked to mature the SAM processes at ARUP - guiding the organization from localized SAM processes to global SAM alignment across 37 countries. Given the nature of ARUP’s business, we see a vast mix of complex software types and I’ve worked to identify those and collaborated closely worked with Snow’s Software Recognition team to help generate a significant number of new titles benefiting many other Snow customers.
I have to deal with many complex processes every day and have enabled Snow to work well within Arup’s environment – and our optimization efforts have engineered a cost avoidance of £4million. I am now looking automate some SAM processes even further benefit the global ARUP business.”
