For the second year in a row, SoftwareONE is excited to announce that we will again have a presence at the upcoming Gartner IT Sourcing, Procurement, Vendor and Asset Management Summit – this year in both the US and EMEA. The events will bookend the months of September – with the US summit taking place September 5 –7th in Orlando, FL and the EMEA summit taking place September 26 – 28 in London.

These events help you take a smarter approach to strategic vendor sourcing and Software Asset Management (SAM) in terms of:

  • Negotiating stronger relationships with both current and future vendors
  • Having a better understanding of your entire software estate and therefore being out in front of audits
  • Optimize your spend across the software estate
  • Use all of this information to stay on top of your software assets to continue to enable digital transformation strategies

We have recently worked with Gartner on a co-authored newsletter regarding “How to Avoid 7 Common SAM Mistakes,” highlighting the common areas where organizations typically face challenges when it comes to Software Asset Management (SAM), including:

  • Failure to establish governance
  • Failure to articulate an effective business case
  • Failure to select an appropriate SAM tool

You can read the full newsletter and blog highlighting our work with Gartner here. Below you can find more details on each of the upcoming summits where SAM and much more will be covered. We hope to see you there!

US Summit Details

Presentation Tracks: Kevin and Mark will present Friday, September 7 at 11:30 a.m. and discuss “Conquer the Mountain: Technology Asset Management Done Right.” The presentation will cover how on the ITAM ‘mountain’ even the scariest cliffs and gorges can be conquered with the right equipment and a solid plan. Establishing clean and reliable data around your hardware and software assets is the first step. Once trustworthy data is established, you can leverage technology and apply strategies to help gain control. In this session, SoftwareONE and Flexera will help guide you on how to best manage your technology assets.
