SM_GuideToNegot_183X204.gif Software Manager: Guide to Negotiating Software Contracts (Oct. '15)

Software Manager: Guide to Negotiating Software Contracts (third edition) will help you avoid expensive loopholes, hidden agendas and other contractual land mines that can wipe out your software's return on investment. Clause by clause, industry insider David Ochroch deconstructs actual software license agreements (SLA) and translates them into plain English. He provides expert guidance on every crucial aspect of negotiating SLAs from what you'll pay for your software, to who can use it, to how you'll prove contract compliance. You'll also learn how to decipher contract terms, how to out-maneuver clever software vendors and how to manage the obligations of your agreement from initial purchase through maintenance and termination. This guide provides the basics and best practices every software manager needs to know. This product is available in print and PDF. 67 pages. Third edition published October 2015.

At last, an introduction to the basics of software asset management (SAM) and software license management (SLM) for a wide-ranging audience! Based on our popular Practitioner Certificate in Software License Management (PCSLM) course, this comprehensive guide is written in uncomplicated English and allows you to cover the course material at your own pace.

> Learn practical tips and best practices.
> Apply concepts to your work by completing the self-assessment exercises.
> Review illustrations, graphics and key terms in each chapter to understand how concepts relate and summarize main points.
> Prepare to take the Practitioner Certificate in Software License Management (PCSLM) exam as well as administer an SLM program at your company.

We show many examples of SLM in practice to illustrate how, when successfully executed, SLM is a good business investment. The case studies also show how professionals who implement SLM best practices have thoroughly incorporated a “culture of compliance” in their workplace.

The guide’s self-assessment exercises enable you to apply each chapter’s concepts to your work environment. Illustrations and graphics show how concepts relate and summarize main points. There is also a handy list of key terms in the front of each chapter. You’ll find that the practice exercises enable you to figure out the best way to handle everyday SLM situations.

Gd_AssessingSAM_cover.gif Software Manager: Definitive Guide to SAM Assessment (May '11)

The Definitive Guide to SAM Assessment and ISO/IEC 19770-1 will help you get the most out of every dollar spent on software.

Software asset management (SAM) is a complex and daunting task to control and manage software media, configurations and the installation process, license agreements and negotiations, purchasing, IT finances, software and hardware inventory and more than 70 other process areas. Here, in 276 pages, are the step-by-step instructions, examples, explanations, illustrations and graphics, case studies and best practices you've been waiting for to help you grow and optimize your SAM program.

After completing the exercises and creating the SAM scorecard included in this practical guide, you'll be armed with the facts and knowledge to alter the course of your organization's software management—and save hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of dollars. You'll also have the expertise to put into action the concepts and objectives within the international SAM standard ISO/IEC 19770-1.

Author and educator Steven Russman is the founder and executive director of the International Business Software Managers Association. In addition to writing more than 100 articles and reports on software asset management and industry trends, he publishes assessments on the latest SAM tools and is a frequent lecturer at industry conferences and seminars.
