Broomstick, LLC, is excited to announce their Microsoft Licensing workshop, which will be held in JW Marriott Houston, TX, on January 21 and 22, 2015, at 5150 Westheimer Road. The workshop is designed for new or established IT, Procurement and Purchasing professionals, Software Asset Managers, Licensing Managers, and System Architects from small, medium and large companies to build or further develop foundational knowledge of Microsoft volume licensing, Microsoft license programs, product licensing, and procurement best practices through real-world licensing scenarios.
Having managed over 4,000 software licensing engagements at companies of all sizes and industries, Broomstick’s former Microsoft licensing and compliance professionals bring their 45 year expertise in a step-by-step, comprehensive training to help participants gain software management and license management skills that directly transfer from the classroom to the workplace.
The workshop covers Microsoft volume license types and licensing programs, Microsoft licensing agreements, concepts and terms, product licensing requirements including SQL Server, Windows server, Office Windows client, Project, Visio, Remote desktop Services, SharePoint, Lync, Exchange, System Center, Developer products, O365 Online Services, Microsoft licensing for virtualized environments, Licensing compliance and procurement best practices, Licensing record keeping, assignment, and resources.
In addition, participants will learn how to best optimize their purchases by choosing the right product licenses and volume licensing programs for their organization's specific IT scenarios, how to implement licensing best-practices, reducing the cost of software ownership and mitigating the risk of non-compliance, and how to interact more effectively with their software reseller and Microsoft representative.
"We save organizations money through optimized right licensing solutions, product licensing strategies and proactively mitigating agreement non-compliance risk," says Bruce Liley, the founder of Broomstick, LLC, who had left a successful 13-year career at Microsoft, where he managed the company’s licensing and contract compliance organization for the Americas' region and developed a majority of Microsoft's customer and partners audit compliance programs. “This workshop will provide the participants with a compass and essential tools to independently navigate through Microsoft’s complex licensing, concepts, products, and licensing rules.”
