Free webinar: 24 January 2023, 14:00 – 15:00 CET

Microsoft licenses, subscriptions and services became a material position in IT budgets, which continue to grow even faster nowadays.

Transition of Microsoft product offering from on-premises perpetual licenses to subscriptions and cloud services had an impact on TCO of solutions used by organizations. This became even more important to organizations, which are now keen to reduce licensing costs and maximize the value from the software investment. However, is it still possible to optimize the spend on Microsoft considering recent changes?

We have the pleasure to invite you to a webinar happening 24th of January 2023 from 14:00 – 15:00 CET, where our and ServiceNow’s experts will answer that question and explain how to approach the optimization of your Microsoft bill by both reducing unnecessary spend as well as increase return from existing investment.
