Recap: SAM Summit 2015

June 19th, 2015

By Steffani Lomax

SAM SummitLast week in Chicago, while the Blackhawks were playing the Tampa Bay Lightning for hockey’s Stanley Cup, the SAM Summit was taking place as well.  The SAM Summit is an annual conference designed for Software Asset Managers, licensing and contract specialists to provide a venue for education on current industry topics and trends. Hosted by the International Business Software Managers Association (IBSMA), the SAM Summit is held at the University of Chicago Gleacher Center, which is around the corner from the Magnificent Mile, an upscale section of Michigan Boulevard known for its high-end shopping.

The beauty of this conference is the participation of experts in the SAM industry and the small size compared  to some other ITAM industry gatherings.  This year there were fewer than 200 registered attendees and just 8 sponsors, so the intimacy of this event enabled great networking. When you see the same people multiple times during a 2.5-day event, you tend to have more time for in-depth conversations with industry experts, vendors and peers. The peer networking is particularly helpful to both new and experienced SAM Managers as a way to gain an understanding of what others in the field are doing to address their challenges.

The conference began each day with breakfast and keynote or panel presentations. The first day opened with the SAM Summit Town Hall, where industry experts debated top-of-mind issues and concerns from varying points of view. Attendees were able to ask the panelists questions and benefit from their guidance.

After the keynotes, the conference offered five tracks that included Sponsor presentations, hot topics, shop talk and end user-only sessions. There were also specific IBM, Oracle and Microsoft tracks that addressed licensing and contract issues on the  minds of the SAM community. Here are some examples of the session topics:

  • IBM Licensing Tips and Tricks
  • Creating Meaningful Communication between SAM and IT Service Management
  • Understanding the Oracle ULA
  • Top 10 Microsoft Compliance Gotchas
  • The Art of the Audit: How Small Teams Can Take on Large Vendors
  • Developing a Model for Evaluating SAM Tools

On the first evening there was no conference event, which gave attendees the opportunity to spend time sight-seeing nearby at River Walk or within the Magnificent Mile district. Because the Stanley Cup Finals were in progress, the city exuded an aura of energy and excitement. Many attendees found restaurants where they could enjoy local cuisine while they  watched the game.

To provide additional networking opportunities as well as entertainment, there was an evening event mid-conference. It began with dinner at the Italian restaurant Topo Gigio, followed by a comedy improvisation performance at Second City, where many famous comedians launched their careers.

Overall, the SAM Summit was well-received, participants benefited from the education they received and believed it was time well-spent. Due to its popularity, the SAM Summit draws quite a few repeat attendees year after year.

If you are looking for a smaller conference where you have a great opportunity for networking with industry experts and peers, add the SAM Summit to your event calendar!
