Build a business case: developing custom apps

Regcast Last week Egan Christensen of Dell joined Gabriel Consulting’s Dan Olds in the Reg studio, to discuss Managing Desktop Software both for fun and profit. This 30-minute audio exclusive, with accompanying slides, is now available to watch on-demand and free of charge from the Reg Archives.

The Register's research has shown that organizations large and small don’t have a good handle on the desktop software used in their organization. While this issue may not be top of mind for many IT pros, some experts estimate that 30 per cent of the desktop software in a typical organization is unnecessary.

During this webcast, Dan and Egan look at how hosted software asset management options make tackling the support headache easier, and can assist in saving money for the business.

Dan kicks things off with a look at what is going on in the real world, highlighting the issues many organizations seem to face. Egan takes over with the process for implementing software asset management, introduces the new service offerings from Dell and provides some real world customer study examples.
