Julie Machal-Fulks, Partner, will present “How to Mitigate 5 IBM Licensing Risks” on November 29th. She will discuss the challenges organizations encounter when trying to ensure compliance with their IBM license agreements. The costs associated with non-compliance of IBM products can be tens of millions of dollars. Proper licensing is critical to avoid unexpected liabilities.

Because IBM products like WebSphere, DB2, Tivoli, Informix, and Lotus Notes are expensive, and companies cannot easily or quickly verify compliance, the risks associated with IBM licensing can be severe. For example, if a company is trying to license under IBM's Sub-Capacity license rules and fails to adhere to all of the requirements, IBM often demands enough licenses to cover the full capacity of the computers on which the software is installed.

The following topics will be covered in the webinar:

  •     Licensing obligations for IBM software
  •     Determining what agreements govern the relationship
  •     Sub-Capacity Licensing

o    ILMT
o    Virtualization and Load Balancing

  •     How IBM acquisitions affect licensing
  •     Audits
