Session Title: Maximizing The Performance of Your Microsoft Investment
Who: Tim Hegedus, Senior Managing Analyst, Microsoft Practice Manager, Miro Consulting
When: November 2nd at 11:00 AM
Where: Charlotte, NC
Your Microsoft expenses represent a living, breathing investment – an important one that needs to perform optimally. Microsoft has a way of making this investment inefficient by obligating you to a multi-year commitment. In business today, where we seldom make three-year or five-year plans (rather more along the lines of 18 month plans), to lock yourself into a contract that is quite rigid can decrease your ability to react to things that are occurring within your marketplace.
In this session, Tim Hegedus will discuss:
· An overview of the various Microsoft licensing constructs
· The role of Software Assurance
· Aligning your Microsoft license agreements to your business objectives
· Techniques for optimizing the terms of your license agreements
