About this course

Course Code TPIBM
Duration 1 Day

The Licensing Essentials for IBM training course provides an introduction to the different licensing models that govern the licensing of IBM products. The course also looks at how IBM licensing fits into and impacts upon the wider Software Asset Management landscape.

This one day course is delivered by an IBM licensing expert who is able to take a 'real world approach' to your licensing challenges and questions. The course also covers tips, tricks and gotchas you need to be aware of, that may not be covered in IBM run courses.

Also please note that the supplier is vendor neutral and not a software reseller, instead we are specialists in the areas of Licensing, Compliance and more broadly SAM. Course materials are provided during the training course. All attendees will receive a certificate of attendance on completion of the one day training course.
