12.00 - License Dashboard look at ‘Why Software Asset Management is relevant to Cloud Transition’ Shifting from traditional software and delivery models to cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) poses several challenges to organizations, not least in terms of Software Asset Management. You’d be forgiven for thinking that migrating to the cloud will simplify your organization’s software license management stresses, but in reality things are potentially about to get a lot more complicated… and costly. Migrating to the cloud will impact on both licensing compliance and financial exposure, as well as the prospect of managing a software estate split between traditional and cloud-based delivery models. Naturally, organizations must fully understand their current IT estate in order to make informed decisions about which users or instances to take to the cloud.

13.00 - Lunch

14.00 - Closed session with Eduserv. Everyone will have the opportunity to highlight issues relating to licensing, deployment or use of the software with colleagues from Eduserv and other institutions.

Suggestions for other topics are always welcome - email Ben Offiler

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
