With the explosion in Software as a Service (SaaS) offers, complex licensing terms and conditions and the productization of existing software assets, management challenges have escalated dramatically over the last two decades. Most large organisations have thousands of such assets and services, but few have full visibility. At the end of the day, the CIO has all the responsibility for managing such assets but must cope with distributed ownership.

In the first CIO Circle event of 2023, we will discuss how effective management of all software assets can be achieved. We will share experiences on the following issues:

  • How can CIOs maximise value from their software assets regardless of where they sit in the organisation?
  • What are the best ways to register and monitor these assets in self sustainable model to drive optimization 
  • What are the latest approaches to smart contracting of software assets, and how does the CIO best manage its many vendor relationships?

EY invites you to a discussion dinner to share its own experience in this critical area of IT management. We invite you to join us on 28 February at the Institute of Directors, commencing at 18.00. Roger Camrass of CIONET will be your host, alongside Krati Laad from EY and as with all CIONET events, we believe that this meeting of minds will help empower you in your digital Leadership role.
