Are software licenses one of your top priorities? Are you in charge of any assets in your IT? If yes, then there are some educational opportunities at HP Discover 2013 that you won’t want to miss.  You can get up-to-date information with topics including IT asset management, software license compliance in virtualized and cloud environments and chargeback.

Here is the brief overview of sessions and booths that I think will be interesting to you:

Tuesday, June 11, 3:00PM: DT3318 - The impact of cloud services and SaaS on your software asset management strategy


Miron Mizrahi from HP Professional Services will discuss how the increased adoption of cloud services and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) presents unique challenges to any enterprise IT team seeking to optimize its software license expenditures. He will discuss issues such as user self-provisioning and subscription pricing models which introduce complexities that any software license optimization (SLO) program must account for.
