How Well Do You Know SAM?

Go Behind the Scenes of Software Asset Management

by Lane Shelton | 09.09.14

I am fascinated by the mere evolution of software licensing as it went from complicated, to super-complicated, to super-ultra-complicated. For the past 15 years, my personal mission has been to help customers understand the rules and then apply those rules in ways that reduce risk and save money.
