Beltug challenges Microsoft. X-change users-only!

Location:virtual meeting


Beltug is giving our members (users only!) the chance to meet with Microsoft. While our last 'Beltug challenges Microsoft' was only back in October 2020, during discussions at Beltug activities, several topics came up.


At this meeting, we will focus mostly on licensing issues, ranging from Microsoft’s current SAM policy, to measurement tools, to licence optimisation. We will also spend some time on privacy issues, such as the consequences of Schrems II.


As this is an interactive meeting, if time allows, we will open the discussion to additional questions. Please feel free to send your suggested topics to Levi.







This event will be held as a virtual meeting. The link will be provided in the Confirmation email.
