Are Your Pos Systems Secure ?

April 24th 2015
11:00 AM EDT/4:00 PM GMT + 1

In this webinar subject experts Paul Parke, along with Jim Bezdan, whose experience includes POS security projects with some of the largest U.S. and international companies, focus on the difficulties around POS security – including the four key strategies that can help mitigate up to 85% of POS security risks.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to automate, accelerate and reduce software distribution risks on POS

Benchmarking the hidden cost of unused software

Thursday, April 2nd
11:00AM ET/16:00 GMT

Keen to maximize revenue and profits, software vendors are becoming increasingly vigilant over licensing and have increased the frequency of audits. The vast majority of companies do not have the appropriate processes in place to fully understand and manage their software assets. As a result, over a quarter (28%) of software remains unused or rarely used.

1E Software Usage Benchmark study collected software usage data from 74 companies across 13 industries.  The total seat count in our benchmark database is more than 1.8 million spanning across 1,800 software titles.

We will share the results of this study and identify areas where companies can focus their software license clean-up efforts and reduce the hidden costs of unused software. You can expect to learn:

  • The relationship between software waste growth relative to company size
  • How you can benchmark your waste and focus efforts on high-yield reclamation
  • The top problem-titles and where should you begin your investigation

Learn how benchmarking can help you take an offensive approach to software true-ups, suite negotiations and audits.

Better Together, Shopping & Servicenow

Tuesday, March 24th
11:00AM ET/16:00 GMT

Would you like to have one consolidated view of all IT incidents or tickets in ServiceNow so you can better correlate incidents with a more targeted response from IT?

The benefit: Fewer resources will be needed to monitor and run your help desk.

A major bottling company has deployed Shopping, 1E's enterprise app store, instead of the native capabilities of ServiceNow. The seamless integration between Shopping and ServiceNow provides:

  • A single system of record to track requests, approvals and delivery of applications, with common audit trails of all requests.
  • An on demand end-user experience where end-users can "shop" for IT assets, thereby maximizing self-service capabilities.
  • System Administrators and help desk personnnel have a single place to monitor the status of user-requests and provide the appropriate level of response.

Ambareesh Kulkarni, VP of Client Services and Liam Morrison, Director of Solution Engineering, will use a live instance of ServiceNow and Shopping, to demonstrate how the two products complement each other and provide a solution that meets the demands of both the end-user and IT.

Optimizing the Software Estate at Your Federal Agency

 
According to the recent GAO Report, the federal government plans to spend at least $82 billion on IT products and services, such as software licenses, in fiscal year 2014.

Is your agency able to identify and remove software that is no longer being used?

Imagine a world where you can obtain full visibility into your software estate, proactively reducing licensing costs while saving money. 1E can help make this world your reality.

Please watch the recording and learn how to:
