An afternoon of presentations on the latest trends and concerns in software asset and license management left the audience of SAM pros at IBMSA's Dallas event Sept. 10 a lot more informed—and a lot more excited about getting together again.
I'd like to thank the IT executives and managers who joined me at the IBSMA/PricewaterhouseCoopers networking event last week. It was an electric event and great to see so many Texas organizations represented including Hilton Hotels, Rackspace, Rent-A-Center, SoftwareAdvocates, Southwest Airlines, Baylor Scott & White Health and CBRE, to name a few.
The afternoon kicked off with presentation from Jeff Greenwald of Flexera Software on software license optimization. Then, Jack Fulford, SAM consulting manager at PricewaterhouseCoopers, followed with an informative talk on data accuracy and management and its importance for SAM reporting and analysis. Snow Software's Brian Skiba delivered an eye-opening review of SAP license management and challenges for dealing with SAP, in addition to the always-complex issue of meeting compliance and audit requirements. The afternoon closed with a networking reception with drinks and appetizers at the Hilton Anatole in downtown Dallas.
This just may be the starting point to a larger event in the future, so if you're in the greater Dallas area and you missed this event, follow IBSMA here or on LinkedIn for notice of future events in Texas and worldwide!
Steven Russman is the executive director of IBSMA.
