Publisher Licenses & Contracts

Fundamental to any SAM initiative is the ability to “count and count well.” Many SAM solutions only compare discovered inventory and purchasing data but don’t consider the licensing rules or contract terms which measure true compliance. Anglepoint has extensive experience with publishers and their software products, licenses, and contracts.

By attending our Software License Agreement Masterclass, you will learn not only the fundamentals but how to develop true auditor-level accuracy in your organizations’ s compliance position. You will learn publisher specific software license types, agreements, and counting methodologies. Our training reveals the largest risks and liabilities and provides actionable recommendations along with possible optimizations (infrastructure, contract, license). Take your SAM program to the next level by signing up now for an Anglepoint led class today! (Certification exam by IBSMA).
