THIS SESSION HAS BEEN CANCELLED - Software Licensing Trends and Audit Focus



Session Description: 

In this presentation we will be highlighting Software compliance audit's role as an important sub-set of software asset management and component of corporate risk management.

We will talk about software audit both as an efficiency mechanism to improve software distribution within an organisation and as a preventative mechanism to avoid copyright infringement prosecution by software companies.

The presentation will outline a strategy for software license optimization and efficiency, specifically from the lens of an auditor's evolving role in this era of desktop and cloud computing. We will also explore elements associated with various licensing providers.
