  • I gained so much out of the course. Troy shared his wealth of knowledge using real world scenarios gained from his background as a Software Licence Auditor to clarify the software use rights of a number of commonly used Microsoft products installed in a number of common scenarios. He provided useful resources and tips so that after the seminar, I was easily able to confirm Orrcon Steel’s correct licensing position.

    The knowledge I gained has enabled me to be smarter in the way I have licensed our virtual SQL Server environment meaning we are now compliant without having to purchase 4 additional SQL CPU licenses (a saving of $28000).
