  • The 80/20 rule and license metrics
  • Not one inventory tool does everything
  • Working with security and other IT teams with inventory
  • The process for dealing with exceptions and educating users about SAM

    Appreciate your insights, Danny. Referring to your point Re knowing your entitlement… Can you confirm top key steps/action needed to gather the intel? For example. Who did you speak to and how did you extract the details?
