This two-part Caucus meeting addresses some of the most profound issues that impact your position today. Not fully understanding software non-compliance and software piracy can be very costly to your organization and diminishes your negotiating leverage when you are faced with true-up costs and penalties. While these are business issues that impact your bottom line, there are real threats associated with software non-compliance. You raise the risk of security breaches, network downtime and increased operational costs as a result.
The second portion of this meeting addresses Software Hot Topics. Our seasoned panel members, all representing local corporations, will discuss some of the software business concerns they have faced in recent times. The panel will summarize software dilemmas and also answer questions from attendees.
