    SAP Indirect Usage and How to Mitigate Against the Risk
    Telma Rafael, Senior Presales Consultant - SAP at Snow Software Recorded: Feb 5 2018 47 mins
    SAP and Diageo hit the headlines when the High Court ruled that SAP had the legal right to pursue Diageo for up to £55 Million in damages for something termed Indirect Usage.

    Any SAP customer that has third party systems interacting with their SAP landscape could potentially be liable to major unbudgeted costs.

    This webinar will define what Indirect Usage is and discuss why SAP are actively pursuing this as an additional source of revenue. Furthermore, it will present a step by step plan for mitigating against the very serious financial risk that SAP Indirect Usage poses to organisations.

    Keeping on top of SAP® licensing is a time-consuming and complex task, and the correlation between licenses defined in a contract versus technical entitlement to use the SAP system has always been open to interpretation.

    SAP licensing experts from Snow will cover how to:

    1.Reduce direct licensing costs
    2.Discover and mitigate Indirect Access risk

    Measuring the return on investment from a SAM program
    Allen Biehl, Director, Snow Software Recorded: Nov 23 2017 34 mins
    Putting a Software Asset Management program in place requires a substantial and sustained commitment on behalf of an enterprise. This involves putting in place controls and processes to assure best practices, the purchase and integration of a SAM platform for managing on-premise desktop and data center software, PCs, laptops and mobile devices, as well as Cloud and SaaS software subscriptions. Determining what the return from this investment is a key consideration for most organizations today. John Burleson will show tools in practice today to estimate the returns from this effort, and show case studies that have in real-life played out to produce demonstrable and calculable returns.

    Microsoft Audit Success: The five key failures to avoid
    Michael Krutikov, Global Product Marketing, Snow Software & Rich Gibbons, Licensing Analyst, The ITAM Review Recorded: Nov 9 2017 45 mins
    Three-quarters of IT and finance leaders fear a software audit by Microsoft. More than Oracle, IBM or SAP. In fact, 68% say they have been audited by the world’s largest software publisher in the last 12 months alone* and this looks set to increase.

    But software audits don’t need to be scary if you’re armed with the right information and insight.

    The key is identifying and addressing the key points of failure in a Microsoft software audit:

    •SQL connections
    •SQL virtualization
    •Managing Office editions
    •Self-Provisioning of Office 365
    •Azure sprawl

    Join Microsoft licensing guru, Rich Gibbons from ITAM Review and compliance pros from the world’s leading SAM technology provider, Snow Software, for a 45-minute masterclass in Microsoft audit readiness.
