Straight Talk on the Cloud License Landscape

Tuesday, May 21

2:00 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.

Keeping software in compliance is a more significant challenge today than ever before. Sorting through all the FUD (fear, uncertainty, doubt) and getting straight answers from the vendors on the proper way to license software in this complicated world is nearly impossible. Making matters worse is the fact that many software vendors have turned to software license audits as an easy way to generate additional revenues. This session covers current software licensing trends, important lessons learned from the real world, and the steps every organization should take now to avoid becoming a victim of a software license audit whose real purpose is to generate revenue.

Speakers:

Michael Corey, Co-Founder, LicenseFortress

Don Sullivan, System Engineer Database Specialist, VMWare
