In this presentation, Julie Machal-Fulks discusses some of the challenges that organizations encounter when trying to ensure compliance with their IBM license agreements. In some instances, the costs associated with non-compliance can be tens of millions of dollars. Proper licensing is critical to avoid unexpected liabilities.
