Microsoft licencing is a real challenge for most organisations with most spending significantly more than they should. Our mission is to show there is a better way.
Reading, Berkshire (PRWEB UK) 9 September 2015
Concorde, specialists in Software Asset Management for Hybrid IT, will be talking at ITAM Review’s upcoming Microsoft Seminar about how to optimise increasingly complex Microsoft software estates. Registration for the event is complimentary and takes place between 9am and 4pm at Tavistock Square in London on September 17th.
The Challenges of Microsoft Licensing:
Microsoft has made a huge number of changes in the way they sell and license their software over the last ten years. The way technology and software is now consumed in the variety of different hosted, on-premise and cloud platforms has had profound implications.
Many organisations find it very hard to track and fully understand how the changes in the consumption of software has affected their compliance, governance and financial positions and how it might affect them in the future. One of Concorde’s Microsoft licensing specialists will be speaking on a panel at this event about this very challenge and how organisations can use SAM tools, such as Core Control, to address it.
There is a better way:
Martin Prendergast, Concorde CEO, Comments: “Microsoft licencing is a real challenge for most organisations, what with the retirement of applications like Microsoft SQL Server 2003 and Windows XP, and the complexities of Licence Mobility, Office 365 and Remote Access such as VDI. In our experience, most organisations are spending significantly more than they should, as they don’t know any better. Our mission is to help attendees at this event learn there is a better way.”
Martin Thompson, founder of ITAM Review, adds: “Our research suggests that as many as 50% of organisations have no SAM tool in place to address the challenges around Microsoft licensing. This number rises dramatically to 65% when looking specifically at Microsoft SQL Server. The good news is that if organisations address this there are significant and immediate financial benefits to be realised.”
