Reg Events How do you think you’re doing when it comes to dealing with your key software, hardware and services suppliers? Are you really "partners", or do you feel like you’re being taken for a ride?

Do you want to discuss the intricacies of Microsoft and Oracle licensing, swap tips on how to deconstruct an SLA or simply establish whether it’s actually possible to get a discount from Apple?

Then you’ll want to join us at the next Register Roundtable, where the big question is:

Are you managing your suppliers or are they managing you?

We’ll be meeting at the Soho Hotel in Central London on September 30 at 3pm.

The formal roundtable will run for 90 minutes, after which we’ll be serving some very fine wines and cocktails to keep the informal conversation flowing. The whole event will be run under Chatham House rules.

We really want to hear from you, and so do your fellow readers. You can sign up right here. ®
