Audit Defence training course added to LISA

I’m pleased to announce that our first Audit Defence training course is now live and available to LISA subscribers.

This course has been created in partnership with Kylie Fowler of ITAM Intelligence, a long term ITAM Review partner, collaborator, and conference speaker.

This means our ITAM essentials subscription now includes:

  • Practical ITAM Course
  • Microsoft Licensing
  • Oracle Licensing
  • IBM Licensing
  • Audit Defence strategies

In addition to launching the Audit Defence training course, we have also this month unveiled a formal certification exam for our Oracle licensing course.

Audit Defence Training Course

Audits are no-one’s favourite thing but all ITAM professionals will probably experience at least one during their career, so we’re here to help! The aim of this course is to help you understand the various stages of an audit, what’s involved along the way, and what you can do to keep control and manage the process effectively.

The course explores and explains topics such as:

  • What can trigger an audit
  • How to reduce the chances of an audit happening
  • How to obtain buy-in from senior leadership
  • Building an audit team
  • The role of 3rd parties
  • Setting the scope of an audit
  • Negotiating a settlement
  • Post audit tips

And more. Sign up to a free trial of our new Audit Defence course – as well as all our other courses – here:

What’s next?

We have just finished recording our “Introduction to SAP Licensing” course, as well as some additional Microsoft modules. We are also in the design stages for our “Tech 101 course” – a set of modules to help explain technology terms and concepts, and in the early stages of bringing a VMware training course to life.

For a full view of our planned training course please view our roadmap on Trello here. These courses, and more, will be added to LISA subscriptions at no extra cost.
