Micro Focus

Join the ITAM Review on Thursday 17th February 2022 at 2pm GMT as we discuss how these organisations fared in 2021 and what to expect from them in 2022 – including audits, product focus areas, licensing and more.

Knowing where they are coming from, and going to, will help you – and other internal stakeholders such as procurement and finance – best understand any risks and successfully manage the relationship for another year.

The Online Summit will also feature relevant sessions from a range of our partners, detailing some of the key challenges you can face when using software and services from these vendors – and how to manage them too!
