Software licensing can represent up to 25 percent of all IT spending. While software is a strategic asset, many companies do not have a strategic solution to manage and optimize software licensing spend. This especially applies to cloud services such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) where there are many different and confusing types of licensing models and subscription plan levels.

Join us for this licensing in the cloud webinar, which will include how to contain costs while managing compliance in a virtualized, cloud world.

Learn more about solutions that are designed to help reduce overall software and cloud spend while managing risk of noncompliance with enterprise software license agreements. We will also highlight practical vendor examples so you can hear how other FORTUNE 1000 companies have used these solutions to help reduce their annual software and cloud spend.

Attendees will come away with a better understanding of:

  1. Cloud landscape – what do we really mean when we say cloud—and how does this impact licensing?
  2. Cloud model and subscription examples
  3. Challenges around management of cloud costs and utilization for both IaaS and SaaS
  4. Solutions and how to reduce costs and avoid license compliance exposures

The webinar will last approximately 60 minutes including a question-and-answer session.

This webinar is a critical event for C-level executives, directors, managers, and other business and operational executives including CTO/CIO, VP/Director of Procurement, and VP/Director of Vendor Management.
