As your business moves to the cloud, ensuring you still remain compliant with licensing terms can become ever more difficult. Each vendor has their own rules which can differ depending on the product in questions, and even where you plan to use the software. To keep on top of this key issue, not only must you understand the rules but you must also know how to track your software inventory in the cloud.

Hear from Rich Gibbons, ITAM Review, and Christopher Brune, Aspera, as they discuss some of the key rules from Microsoft, IBM, and Oracle, how SAM can help you prepare for the cloud, and how to track software inventory in cloud environments.
