14:15 Toyota Case: SAM in the cloud: necessity or waste of time?
When moving to cloud-based services, SAM may seem to become unnecessary. So are SAM managers a threatened species? In this session, Steven Wynants of Toyota will work around 3 statements, giving his view on the future of SAM in the cloud.
- Statement 1: As a SAM manager, I feel less in control when my company buys cloud services.
- Statement 2: My management feels SAM is no longer required now we have moved to the cloud.
- Statement 3: I have redefined my role as SAM manager to include cloud services in my scope of work.

16:15 Need an aspirin? Cloud is not the end of your licence compliance headaches!
Rather than solving your licence compliance headaches, moving software into the cloud will in fact generate new or additional concerns, triggering the need for an even more sophisticated SAM approach. From a contract perspective, various challenges arise: do your existing licence contracts allow you to move software into the cloud? Do they authorise you to use on-premises software in conjunction with a cloud-based application? And what additional regulatory frameworks kick in when you go to the cloud? Erik Valgaeren will address these and other related questions.
