Oracle and Microsoft are critical vendors for almost all organisations – with one or both of them featuring heavily in terms of software infrastructure and software spend.
Join Rich Gibbons and AJ Witt from the ITAM Review as we discuss Oracle & Microsoft: Financial year-end analysis on Thursday 28th July at 14:00.
We will examine how both of these Tier 1 vendors have fared through their most recent financial year and what to expect from them in the next – including audits, product focus areas, cloud, licensing, and more. The aim of the session is to provide an overview of the last financial year and arm you with key information you can use to help you in upcoming conversations and dealings with Oracle and Microsoft.
Knowing where these vendors are coming from, and where they are heading, will help you as ITAM managers better understand any risks and successfully manage the relationship for another year.
ITAM Review analysts will look at the vendors financial results and what they might reveal about their roadmap, and how they may impact renewals and contracts moving forward.
The agenda will include:
Rich has almost 15 years’ experience in the world of IT and software licensing, having been both a software sales manager for a VAR and a Microsoft licensing endorsed trainer.
A Northerner renowned for his shirts, Rich is a fan of most films, Hip-Hop, travel, football in general (and specifically MUFC), Marvel and reading as many books as possible. Finding ways to combine these with software licensing is always fun.
