SAMexpert Microsoft Licensing Experts
Are you a Services Provider? Do you have a Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA) with Microsoft? Let's talk about common pitfalls and ways to avoid them.

Why should you care? $500,000 reasons. This is about how much we have saved in total in several SPLA Audit Defence exercises.
