The International Association of Information Technology Asset Managers (IAITAM) will hold its 15th annual IAITAM Spring ACE conference May 2 – 4, 2017 in Las Vegas, NV with a theme of Superhero for Business this year. SoftwareONE will sponsor Booth #21 and will also send two speakers to the event:
Julie Owens, SAM Consultant – Julie will present, “So You’re Being Audited: 10 Steps to Survive Every Organization’s Nightmare” on May 4th at 10:00 a.m.
Julie’s presentation will discuss how the average number of times that medium-to-enterprise organizations are served a Software Vendor Audit letter has risen to four times a year. The time and resources alone that are needed to fulfill these required activities can be quite costly, and that is not taking into account the expenditures of the necessary software purchases, nor the potential fines that can be levied. Her session will detail proven strategies to ease the painful process as well as methods to avoid such risks in the future.
Julie has over a decade of technology experience, five of those focused on Software Asset Management (SAM). She is certified in MCP for SAM, along with various Microsoft certifications. She has focused the bulk of her career on Licensing and Software Asset Management training.
Russ Eicholtz, Team Lead – SAM Managed Services – Russ is presenting, “Cutting Software Costs with SAM,” on May 2nd at 10:00 a.m.
In this session, Russ will discuss the challenges existing in today’s changing software environments and how to start cutting costs utilizing SAM methodologies and tools. He will also explore some specific action items end users can take with top publishers to start reducing and avoiding costs.
Russ has over 15 years of experience with software asset management practices, focusing on compliance and managed services. He is the SoftwareONE team lead for the consulting and analyst teams, helping companies transform their SAM practices from end-to-end.
SoftwareONE is excited to be sponsoring at this year’s IAITAM conference – joining over 1,000 of the IT asset management industry’s top professionals for three days of education, networking, and idea exchange. Be sure to stop by Booth #21 to visit with our SoftwareONE SAM experts.
