Get an extra helping of IBM and Oracle licensing education, best practices, and insider tips at the SAM Summit 2015 Live from London Web Conference this year with our new daylong focused IBM and Oracle Web summit.
Every enterprise software asset manager wants a better grip on IBM and Oracle licensing. And the demand is growing. How will the constant and rapid changes at IBM and Oracle effect your organization? Find out at the most comprehensive IBM and Oracle training opportunity of the year: The SAM Summit London 2015 Web Conference presents IBM and Oracle focused sessions. Program overview
Significant changes in IBM licensing have occurred in just the last year: updated terms and conditions, changes to the Passport Advantage program, new options with IBM licensing in the cloud, and a simplified Cognos BI license model, to name just a few.
"IBM has expanded their cloud portfolio but has also divested some low-margin software products," says IBM licensing expert Koen Dingjan of SolarCom. "This change of scope of IBM's applications brings both new opportunities and new challenges to enterprises."
David Fraser, a senior director with Oracle's License Management Services, told IBSMA at our 2014 London conference, "What we're seeing now is an absolute appetite to engage in a larger conversation to understand Oracle licenses on-site and in the cloud. Cloud licensing is still relatively new in the market and customers are working through their cloud strategy."
And license managers at both senior and junior experience levels tell IBSMA they need guidance when it comes to cloud and on-premise installations, for Oracle and other enterprise software.
