  • Measuring the return on investment from a SAM program Nov 23 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Allen Biehl, Director, Snow Software
    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 Nov 9 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Michael Krutikov, Rich Gibbons (ITAM)
    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.

  • The Cloud Visibility Challenge: Can IT Leaders Keep On Top of Cloud Spending? Sep 28 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Join Snow Software and a guest from Forrester Research as they:
    Cloud solutions offer many benefits - lower initial costs, faster deployments, lower operating costs, and more product innovation. But they also enable business units to buy technology without the knowledge or involvement of the CIO. This creates a visibility challenge for the CIO and the IT function. "Dark" cloud spending can create security exposures, compliance risks, higher costs and operational problems.

    Join Snow Software and a guest from Forrester Research as they:

    • Explore the shift in IT spend and how it is driving the need for CIOs to redefine themselves as the Chief Influence Officer.
    • Share how to use data and intelligence about what’s happening on the network to protect against unplanned expenditure
    • Show how you can retain control of costs, optimization and risk in your IT operations.

  • SAM in the Cloud Sep 14 2017 2:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    David Foxen, SAM Evangelist
    The introduction of Cloud technologies and subscription licensing has caused a lot of confusion for some organisations. They wrongly believe that there is no need for software asset management anymore as the licenses ‘manage themselves.’ This is not the case.

    Cloud technologies adds a new dimension and challenge to the SAM world. The focus is now on optimisation and ensuring that investment in Cloud services such as Azure does not go to waste. There is also the threat of spending hundreds of thousands on un-used Cloud services, something SAM needs to manage.

    Join Snow Software as they explain the new challenges for SAM professionals, and why your organisation needs software asset management now, more than ever!

    - Hoe identificeert u “inactive users” binnen uw SAP domein
    - Hoe analyseert u zogenaamde overspent of underspent situatie’s
    - Hoe identificeert u Indirect Usage binnen uw organisatie.
    - Welke SAP condities en voorwaarden leiden tot financiële risico’s
    - Wat kunt u al doen aan indirect usage?

  • Les usages indirects SAP® et les redressements financiers Recorded: Apr 25 2017 43 mins
    Patrick Thon, SAP PreSales Manager France Snow Software
    La question des usages indirects SAP® est d'actualité car les sociétés commencent à subir des redressements financiers de plusieurs millions d'euros.

    L'impact de la récente décision de la Haute Cour de justice britannique sur les clients SAP® pourrait bientôt suivre en France. En effet, les contrats existants ont une définition de l’usage des logiciels SAP® qui ne correspond plus à la réalité de la gestion des licences comme le conçoit SAP® actuellement.

    Venez assister à notre webinar du mardi 25 avril pour voir comment vous préparer à ce type d'audit et vous assurer une exposition financière minimum à ce risque, de plus en plus élevé.

    A travers un scénario fictif de réunion avec un DSI sur le sujet du SAM, tiré de nos expériences sur le terrain, nous vous proposons de découvrir :

    - Les questionnements de ces décideurs et ce qui les amène à vouloir investir pour mieux gérer leurs actifs logiciels et à contrario ce qui les freine
