“Don’t Leave the Job Half Done – Support Strategic IT Procurement with Vendor Management and Software Asset Management”
Software Asset Management is critical to maximizing the value you receive from your software contracts. Software as a Service offers new ways of buying software, but brings with it new challenges. Even when outsourcing, the management of software has never been more important to vendor management. This event is for End Users Only.

Reading the fine print and knowing what to negotiate can make all the difference [Stewart Buchanan]
