SAP Indirect Access Risk Mitigation - PT II

Part 2 of 2: Discover risk, reduce financial exposure and automate license optimization

With an optimized direct license estate (as described in the first blog of this series), an organization has the firm foundation required for estimating potential Indirect Access costs and effectively minimising them.

Notes from Gartner ITFPAM in Nashville & London

Over the last two weeks, Gartner has held its annual ITFPAM (IT, Finance, Procurement & Asset Management) conferences in the United States and United Kingdom. If there was a key message, it was that the Business has quite definitely issued divorce proceedings against the IT function and is already enjoying life as a singleton again. 

Simplification: the great lie of the Cloud Era

Why the CIO needs analytics now more than ever

At the start of 2017, I tasked our Snow Software sellers with introducing a simple question into their conversations with senior business and IT leaders at organizations around the world. 
The question is short and simple:

Is the cloud making your job simpler or more complicated?” 

With Visibility Comes Security
