Tired of an ever increasing deficit? Come to Washington DC and see how Asset Management can help you be more fiscally responsible!

 


HP Software Universe is in Washington DC this June!  Could there be a better venue to hear how you can reduce the cost of your IT assets and provide better services to your customer?  Maybe members of congress can join us and learn something too!  


 


This years Asset Management presentations are going to be impressive.  I can attest to that because I am the track manager for Asset Management and I just finished reviewing all the presentations. Four of the six discussions will be presented by a customer or partner, and two will be presented by HP software experts.   There’s a variety of topics including Software Asset Manager (SAM), Service Asset and Configuration Management (SACM), managing assets in a virtualized IT environment and discovery teaching, just to mention a few.


 


I’ll give you a little more insight.  One of the presentations is about software asset management and will feature a large healthcare company that saved lots of money by implementing asset management to control software licenses   They had been audited by a large software vendor (you can guess who, I’m sure) and were surprised when they found out they needed to pay millions of dollars due to under licensing!!  Unfortunately many companies are experiencing the same dynamic because software vendors are now taking the opportunity to collect additional revenue from accounts especially when they see flags such as mergers and divestitures or any other business change.


 


Another customer, a large insurance company, will present their software integration strategy around Service Asset and Configuration Management.  They go into detail about the challenges they had and how they overcame them to create an ‘On Demand’ IT organization.   They are still evolving but they’ve done some remarkable things…
