The IBM Licensing Essentials training course has been created in partnership with Eric Chiu of H W Fisher’s IT Asset Consulting practice (FIAC), our long term go-to-guy on IBM Licensing.

This means our ITAM essentials subscription now includes:

  • Practical ITAM Course
  • Microsoft Licensing
  • Oracle Licensing
  • IBM Licensing.

Continuing to drive our vision of creating a “Netflix-like” all you can eat subscription for ITAM training.

In addition to IBM Licensing training, we have also recently added course completion certificates, demonstrating successful completion of courses. A formal certification exam and certificate is live for Practical ITAM (PITAM), Oracle and Microsoft certifications are in the pipeline to be released soon.

What’s next?

Kylie Fowler has recorded “An Introduction to Audit Defence”, which follows in August. SAP Licensing also follows in 2018. For a full view of our planned training course please view our roadmap on Trello here. These courses will be added to LISA subscriptions at no extra cost.
