About this event

Come and spend a day learning about what’s new in the world of Microsoft licensing at our new Microsoft Licensing Training Course.

With changes made to Microsoft licensing each month, it can be difficult to stay up to date. We ensure our training courses are as up to date as possible, so you’ll always receive the latest information from us, to help you stay current and compliant.

Whether you’re:

  • A Software Asset Manager needing to better ensure compliance
  • A Risk & Compliance officer looking to better understand possible dangers
  • A Solution Architect wanting to improve your designs

or any one of the myriad other people whose daily role involves Microsoft licensing, this session will give you the information you need to optimise your next audit, review or meeting.

We will cover both Microsoft products and Microsoft programs, so whether you’re thinking about a product upgrade, moving to the Cloud, or renewing/changing your licensing agreement (or perhaps all three!) – we’re sure attending this course will be beneficial.

Topics will include:

  • Understanding Microsoft Azure Licensing & billing
  • Understanding the different licensing agreements – Open, MPSA, EA, SCE & CSP
  • Windows Server 2019 Core Licensing
  • Office 365 Plans – What are they and what’s in them?
  • Licensing Windows 10
  • SQL Server 2017
  • E5 Security products
  • Licensing in the Cloud
  • Microsoft 365
  • Hybrid Licensing
  • Visual Studio
  • System Center 2016
  • Software Assurance
  • Azure Cost Management
  • Azure Stack
  • Dynamics 365 update

The session will be informative and interactive – so bring a pen, a pad (or a laptop if you prefer) and as many questions as you can think of!

Price:

Full Price: $999.00 per delegate

Early Bird Rate: $799.00 per delegate (valid until 1 October 2019)
