Software licensing knowledge is foundational for ITAM & SAM professionals. LISA offers comprehensive training for all major publishers including Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, and SAP. We also have courses covering RedHat, Micro Focus, Quest, VMWare, Salesforce, Docusign, and Autodesk. Our courses introduce you to metrics, licensing agreements and publisher-specific risks to be aware of. Topics such as indirect access and BYOL cloud licensing are also covered. Each course is presented by expert practitioners who manage licensing for each publisher on a daily basis. A LISA course is the best way to get up to speed on any publisher, whether you’re new to the topic or already have experience at managing licensing.

All of these courses are also covered in LISA Live! sessions providing subscribers with the benefit of receiving the latest licensing updates from the course leader, the opportunity to ask questions from your training or business, grow your professional network and more!
