    All Day

    December is IT Asset Management Awareness Month and on December 13, Craig Guarente, CEO of Palisade Compliance will be presenting a webinar on the IAITAM website on Mergers & Acquisitions: 5 Software Asset Risks.

    Many firms see acquisitions as a way to streamline operations and reduce costs, but corporate restructuring including mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures are riddled with software contract risks. This webinar will reveal 5 risks for Oracle customers involved in the M&A process. Oracle’s complex contracts are designed to limit licensing flexibility, and Oracle sales teams are trained to uncover and exploit any advantage to create leverage and drive up revenue. Not an Oracle customer? Don’t worry – this webinar is relevant to anyone undergoing a corporate restructure, even for non-Oracle users.

    This is only available to non-IAITAM members on December 13. Here is how non-members can view the webinar:
