Certero Sessions

Day One Workshop: SAM Soufflé: 1 Part Tool + 2 Parts People = A Recipe for Cost Savings

The benefits of an effective SAM strategy are immense, from enhanced compliance and reduced risk through to savings and process improvement.  However, getting there takes time, planning and specialist skills. So what do organizations do if they want all the benefits?  Invest in a tool and leverage in-house staff?  What happens if organizations don’t have the internal resources to implement or manage a fully-fledged license management program?  Join Helena Cotter from Bank of New Zealand and Eric Gohdes from Certero as they discuss DIY SAM vs. SAM Managed services.
