Flexera Software will be hosting a webinar on Managing the Full Lifecycle of Your Software Assets with guest speaker Patricia Adams, Research Director at Gartner. Patricia is the "go to" Gartner analyst for IT asset management and Software License Optimization vendors and tools.
In her presentation, you will learn why Gartner believes that by 2017, 20% of organizations will have implemented a Software License Optimization and Entitlement tool, up from only about 5% of enterprises today.
You'll also learn why an integrated enterprise app store is a key requirement of a Software License Optimization solution.
Hear about best practice processes and tools for turning discovery data into "good discovery data" and how a SKU libary eases the license reconciliation process. Patricia will provide an Action Plan for Software Asset Managers at the conclusion of her presentation-- what you should do in the short term, intermediate term and long term to improve your SAM processes and capabilities.
