Software Asset Management has a lot of negative perceptions. In fact, we see a lot of customers benefit from it including cost savings
Microsoft is hosting an external industry event and it’s a great opportunity to meet with our leading SAM and licensing experts, hear from thought leaders on SAM best practice as well as meet and network with over 250 IT and Management professionals
Why should you attend?
1. The conference agenda is designed to help customers understand the dynamically changing business environment impacting the UK and driving the need for Software Asset Management, as more and more of the IT budget is being spent on software. The event will also showcase the results of the IDC run survey to illustrate the UK’s attitudes towards SAM adoption, the current state of Sam adoption and what businesses need to do make SAM a business and IT priority.
2. The day will split into two streams, commercial and technical and will include customer case studies, keynotes, advice from leading vendors such as Microsoft and Oracle.
