What: Companies in the U.S. spend billions of dollars each year on licensing technology for critical day-to-day operations. Mission-critical software applications are in place to keep manufacturing, payroll, heath care, customer relationship management (CRM), and database management up and running.

The first 30 minutes of the session will be dedicated to the basics of technology escrow, and the second 30 minutes will cover advanced topics such as Software as a Service (SaaS), off-shore licensing, exclusive supply agreements, and Verification best practices.
