Compliance Manager Summit 2017

All NEW Compliance Manager Summit to debut in 2017

License compliance is one of the most difficult aspects of any software asset manager’s job—from audits and negotiations to compliance in the cloud and understanding the role of cyber security in compliance. This is why the Compliance Manager Summit 2017 is changing its focus in a radical way to become an end-user summit. Click here for the latest agenda details.

This March 13-14, 2017, the International Business Software Managers Association (IBSMA) invites you to their fifth annual event delivering licensing know-how to end user/practitioner SAM managers (not our usual audience of software vendor compliance managers and auditors).

This is an exclusive opportunity as a SAM manager to gain an inside view of how the industry’s top companies manage license compliance. A 3-track program over two full days will present innovations and successes through thought-provoking presentations, roundtable discussions, case studies, and open networking time to help you assess and manage compliance, audits and license negotiations.
