August 25th, 2020 | 5pm IST We get a lot of questions about IBM’s Authorized SAM Provider (IASP) offering. Many people wonder if IASP is a way for IBM to get into an organization “through the back door.” However, this is not true. In fact, the IASP offering is designed to allow the customer to take full advantage of all IASP program benefits and strengthening the IBM-customer relationship.
This LIVE IASP Q&A Panel will include panelists from IBM, Anglepoint, Converge, and companies that are currently in the IASP program - providing perspective from vendors, ASPs, resellers, and customers.
IBM's IASP offering is an alternative to license compliance reviews and provides other commercial benefits as well. The panel will answer questions from the audience, including topics such as:
What are the keys to a successful SAM tool implementation? We’ll go through each of these in great detail:
- Audit exemption & other benefits (no back S&S, sub-cap licensing, normal commercial terms, etc.)
- Requirements to participate in the offering
- Relationship & reporting between IBM, Client, and ASP
