KPMG and IBM IASP Webcast: The future of IBM’s software asset management

Webcast overview:

IBM is introducing an alternative to software audits with a new service called the IBM Authorized SAM Partner (IASP) initiative, offered through several exclusive partners, including KPMG.

Topics will include the following:

  • Overview of the new IBM Authorized SAM Provider (IASP) option, and comparison of this to the current IBM audit program
  • IASP key benefits: removal from IBM software audit process, IBM licensing streamlining and cost savings through optimization
  • Criteria for making a SAM selection for your organization – what’s right for you?
  • Overview of KPMG’s SAM capabilities
  • Benefits of partnering with KPMG to manage your assets, whichever direction you choose.
