Sub-Capacity pricing has been with us since October
of 2000 but many sites didn’t use sub-capacity until years
later. This session will describe all the “current” ways you
could be lowering your software charges. The various pricing
metrics, including Mobile Pricing, Co-location pricing,
Country Multiplex Pricing, and IPLA product pricing are
discussion. You can take this information to your company
and see which concepts will help in your environment.
No one at IBM has a job to save your company money or reduce
your software charges. IT IS UP TO YOU!
The session will also cover reviewing your invoices from
IBM. It is not just a “financial” task, it is a technical
IBM is auditing you; why aren’t you auditing IBM? Actual
invoicing errors will be shown though actual names will be
obfuscated!-Alan Sherkow-I/S Management Strategies, Ltd.
