About This Webinar
Have you been the wrong end of a digital transformation project, which looked to elevate IT from on-premises software into a bright and shiny cloud? Was a “copy, cut and paste” approach adopted in the hope that what went before is the way of how things will be?

Or perhaps you have started a SAM program, and the traditional mantra of SAM has you considering optimization after an ELP has been produced?

Stop! At ITAA we have acknowledged that an ELP is called for by a software vendor, but a software vendor does not pay your wages – your company does. Therefore, don’t talk about having a lean IT estate, start with creating a lean IT estate: pay for what you use and nothing more!

Several benefits will arise out adopting such an approach:

• Fewer points of entry & exit to the IT estate
• Fewer versions and editions of software to support
• Re-stock the licence pool (on site software)
• Re-purposed licences can off-set unlicensed installs

And there’s more! But tune in on the 29th June to find out how, as a SAM Manager, you can become the CFO’s new best-friend!
