Michael Vilain, from ReLicense AG, has worked in the IT industry for more than 30 years. Michael has an extensive knowledge about the Software Industry. Worked 10 years in IBM software division and 15 years for Microsoft and 6 years for Crayon Group. Michael joined ReLicense in 2018 to help them build up their business in the Northern Region (UK + Scandinavia).
Michael will present on IT cost disruption: “The pre-owned licensing market offers organizations the opportunity to reduce costs for licensing Microsoft software immensely, and keep the costs for Microsoft licensing predictable while remain innovative. Typically, the costs for licensing Microsoft software just keeps rising. Microsoft continuously innovates its product range adding functionalities to the existing product suites. But what if your organization does not need these additional functionalities or services (yet)? Normally, your organization will be confronted with the increased costs anyway, but that does not have to be the case any longer.”
Danielle Jacobs is General Manager of Beltug. Beltug, the Belgian Association of Digital Technology Leaders, published a Proposal for a Software Publishers’ Code of Conduct.
The ultimate goal of this proposal for a code of conduct is for software publishers to provide legal certainty and unambiguous software licensing contracts with a clear definition of responsibilities for both software publishers and customers. The principles of the CoC are also translated in concrete clauses, companies can use in their negotiations. Danielle will present their approach.
