3:30 PM Presentation: Gather Documents and Prepare Teams to Comply with Software License Audits

Large legacy software vendors may knock on your door to see if all of your organization’s users are licensed or if you have overdeployed their software.  Violations can bring severe costs – so it is better to commit to smaller expenditures of money and training in advance to avoid them. As the Category Manager for IT Procurement at Canada’s largest telecommunications company, Shahryar Ali Khan is well-suited to help you prep for and avoid these risks.  
•Link the rise of compliance audits to the drop in new software sales as revenue pressures increase
•Rank and recruit firms that specialize in tracking software asset management, usage, and licenses
•Communicate to team members the difference between paying maintenance on owned software and using software without owning the license
