In this session, Timelex took us through the different steps of vendor lifecycle management, from selection to offboarding. Then DLA Piper described how different parts of the organisation need to be involved: procurement, of course, but also the business, IT and legal. Finally, Katoen Natie took on a number of specific issues around licensing and open software.

The presentations from the event are available to Beltug members (after login).
