Please consider presenting at Chicago's premier summit for software license management professionals. We're looking for top-notch speakers for the following sessions:

These sessions are favorites of SAM Summit attendees. Case study sessions run 45 minutes.

    Suggested case study topics include managing a software audit, JAVA subscription management, Oracle vendor relationship management, Oracle ULA management and certification, data security and software-as-a-service, financial management and SAM, lessons learned from a tool implementation, license management in the global enterprise and more.
