Lone Survivor Marcus Luttrell

Keynote Speaker: Marcus Luttrell

DECORATED NAVY SEAL & BEST-SELLING AUTHOR OF LONE SURVIVOR

Marcus Luttrell’s #1 New York Times best-selling book, Lone Survivor, tells the harrowing story of four Navy SEALs who journeyed into the mountainous border of Afghanistan and Pakistan on Operation Redwing. An unparalleled motivational story of survival, the book is also a moving tribute to the friends and teammates who did not make it off the mountain. A powerful testament to the courage, integrity, patriotism and community that forged these American heroes, Lone Survivor is an incredible account of teamwork, fortitude and modern warfare.

In January 2014, Luttrell’s amazing story made the leap to the big screen with the blockbuster film, Lone Survivor, directed by Peter Berg (BattleshipHancock) and starring Mark Wahlberg (The FighterThe Departed) as Luttrell. The film celebrated a historic open, earning the second biggest January debut of all time.

Straight Talk On The Software License Landscape

As more and more of our organization’s software infrastructure is stretched between on premise, public clouds, and hybrid clouds, keeping software in compliance is a more significant challenge than ever before. Sorting through all the FUD and getting straight answers from the vendors on the proper way to license software in this complicated world is not always easy.

Some vendors have turned to Software License Audits as an easy way to generate additional revenues. In this presentation, we will discuss current Software License trends in this cloud-fueled world, lessons learned, and steps every organization should take to stay in license compliance and not be the victim of their next software license audit.
