Flexera Software has recently run a series of Customer and Partner Advisory Boards in both Sydney and Melbourne, Australia. The combined audience across the events represented close to a million devices under management in terms of both hardware and software asset management. Key trends discussed included Cloud, Software as a Service (SaaS) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), and their impact on software licencing, software asset management, and license compliance.
The Advisory Boards provide the opportunity for key Australian and New Zealand customers and partners to gain insight into Flexera’s FlexNet Manager Suite product roadmap whilst at the same time influencing the future direction of the company’s products via direct contact with Flexera’s Product Management team.
The Melbourne Advisory Board meetings also enabled Flexera to showcase the company’s Melbourne office, a significant hub for software development employing over 80 Australian-based developers.
Steve Beards, Vice President of Flexera Software Asia Pacific and host of the events, stressed the importance of the Advisory Boards to Flexera Software, its customers and its partners. “These events provide a wonderful opportunity to exchange ideas and gain feedback on Flexera’s strategic view of the software asset management marketplace. It is also an opportunity for the company to showcase its considerable investment in terms of software development jobs and skills in the region.”
