9:30 AM WORKSHOP A: ENSURING YOUR SOFTWARE ASSET MANAGEMENT PROGRAM DELIVERS VALUE BEYOND PLAIN COMPLIANCE

Ensuring compliance and ensuring that a firm is not under-licensed are often the primary objectives for software asset managers. But license optimization, IT security and implementing processes and policies are just some of the areas in which Software Asset Management (SAM) can save money for companies. Attend the session to understand issues that bog SAM teams down and their solutions as well as:

• Consider implementation, training and process rollout practices for efficiency
• Review and optimize time consuming transactional License Management for freeing up time?
• Examining how to manage complex software licenses

3:45 PM EVALUATING THE CHARGEBACK VS. SHOWBACK JOURNEY FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION

You’ve probably heard a lot of chatter about the chargeback-versus-showback debate. Perhaps you’ve developed strong opinions about the appropriateness of one over the other. Or perhaps you’re on the fence. Hear lessons learned on how to overcome internal resistance, bust misconceptions, and demystify the two models by:

• Measuring the largest drivers of service consumption to derive IT costs and understand cost levers
• Ensuring chargeback is integrated with finance and/or accounting systems
