Join Rich Gibbons from The ITAM Review and Eric Chiu, FisherITS on Thursday 5 November at 4pm UK time.
In today’s climate, enterprise customers can no longer afford to take the risk of a large financial penalty when a vendor licence audit goes south. The average cost of a vendor audit to an enterprise business is approaching £500,000, often caused by vendors taking advantage of complex contract language, agreement terms and accidental deployment issues to drive revenue for their audit programmes. Penalties for “unintentional non-compliance” can be significantly reduced or even avoided through careful management of the audit process, especially in the final financial quarter for many of the large software where pressure on settlement is typically the highest.
