Advanced Licensing for Microsoft®

Service Description

Course Overview

The Advanced Licensing for Microsoft training course is a valuable extension of our Licensing Essentials for Microsoft course or for delegates who already have some pre-existing knowledge of Microsoft licensing. The course allows delegates to further develop their understanding, providing in-depth learning of complex licensing scenarios and highlighting key areas of consideration when negotiating new agreements.
Furthermore, with many organisations looking at moving to cloud services, this course will provide various options to make the transition a more efficient process.

This two day course is delivered by a fully qualified ITAMS’ Microsoft 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 Microsoft run courses.

Also please note that ITAMS is vendor neutral and not a software reseller nor a Microsoft LSP, instead we are specialists in the areas of Licensing, Compliance and more broadly – SAM.
