Learn Microsoft's complex volume licensing rules, concepts, products, and agreement requirements.
Reno, Nevada (PRWEB) February 10, 2015
Broomstick, LLC, is excited to announce their Microsoft Licensing workshop, which will be held on March 11 and 12, 2015 in the Dallas Marriott City Center, located at 650 N Pearl St, Dallas, TX. The workshop is designed for new or established IT Managers and IT decision makers, 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, programs, product licensing, and procurement best practices through real-world licensing scenarios.
Having managed over 4,000 Microsoft software licensing audits 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 build and develop their software management and license management skills that directly transfer from the classroom to the workplace.
The workshop covers Microsoft 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, software licensing audit procedures, 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. Improper management of software licenses puts not only big, but medium and small-size companies at risk of Microsoft compliance audit. How to get better control over software license usage and interact more effectively with their software reseller and Microsoft representative is another key issue covered in the workshop.
“We help companies learn Microsoft licensing, save money through optimized right licensing solutions, and proactively mitigate risk in the event of a Microsoft audit or Microsoft Software Asset Management review (SAM),” says Bruce Liley, the founder of Broomstick, LLC, who had left a successful 13-year career at Microsoft, where he managed the company’s North America customer and partner compliance organization 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 navigate through Microsoft’s complex volume licensing rules, concepts, products, and agreement requirements.”
