Software audits are increasingly being used to gain leverage by ERP mega-vendors frequently to keep you on a vendor-dictated roadmap. And most find the question is not “if” you will be audited, but “when?”
While most IT and Asset Management teams understand the motivation for an audit, many don’t realize audits can be leveraged to flip the narrative with their vendors. In this webinar Jeremy Sayler, Director of License Advisory Services at Rimini Street provides a checklist of the ways you can be better prepared for an audit, and more importantly, how you can gain control of your IT roadmap and vendor relationships every step of the way. Hosted by Dan Ashton, Senior Product Marketing Director at Rimini Street, this discussion will be eye-opening, particularly to Oracle and SAP licensees who are facing support renewals in the next 6-18 months.
Jeremy is an 18-year enterprise software industry veteran with experience in support delivery, software license audits, account management, and project management. Mr. Sayler currently holds the position of Director, License Advisory Services and is responsible for empowering Rimini Street clients to more confidently manage their vendor software license agreements by providing guidance on vendor contract terms, license metrics, audit processes and how license usage is calculated by software vendors. Prior to joining Rimini Street, Mr. Sayler spent 8 years at Oracle Corporation serving as license auditor for Oracle License Management Services.
