It just seems like time is evaporating!

 

I am hoping many of you will be attending EDUCUASE Annual conference in Anaheim this year! Or if you are in the area in time for our f2f meeting, please join us…

 

Tuesday, October 15

5.30 PM- 7.30 PM PT

Meeting Room 303B

 

 

Okay, I would love to have agenda suggestions! It is your meeting so let me know what you want to hear/talk/discuss!! Please send to

 

mailto://mknox@utsystem.edu&subject=LicensingAgendaCall

 

Based on ongoing discussions, I assume Adobe could be a topic. How to address licensing challenges with many vendors in a virtual computer lab (etc) environment. Usually we have some Microsoft queries. Stat packages as well.   But I would love to hear your topic ideas!!!

 

Also, on the list serve (just do a reply), please feel free to comment about whether we try to webcast or skype  this. We have done this the last few times but it is a significant struggle. People in the room have to get to a microphone to comment, some of us trip when doing so (mea culpa), sometimes we have connection issues, we are in the Pacific time zone this year so it is not an afternoon meeting but a night one for much of the US,… I welcome your thoughts.

 

Regards, Marg

Good humor Susan!

 

I usually beg Bob H and he has done  up minutes for us in the past. I surely will be begging again

 

I am not able to get to the regionals unless in Austin but certainly a birds of the feather at such is always in order.

 

Your other questions are great fodder for the meeting!

I also won't be able to make it to the left coast, although I truly wish I could.   If a webcast of some sort isn't possible any way of capturing the discussion would be great to have.

In addition to the virtualization issues that Susan mentioned, I'm also interested in
  • How people are managing the growing fragmentation in purchasing and management caused by the move to individual subscription models, such as Adobe's Creative Cloud.  Or whether this is an issue for people at all, who may embrace the whole SAAS model. 
    • Implications of personal subscriptions accessed from university machines
    • Aggregate financial impact of replacing university-vendor relationships with client-vendor relationships

  • Dealing with legal reviews of software
    • Increasing amounts of time spent on fruitless haggling with vendors
    • Can a template for educational and/or state institutions be developed to address common interests such as jurisdiction for disputes

Good ones! And the struggle is also more and more compliance needs! For example, can a master contract over multiple institutions (each with a President) actually do some of the privacy items in the contract itself or do PHI Business Associates (BAAs) and FERPA have to be signed with the institution..argh

I too agree with Janice and I would like to add that we also need a meaningful discussion about state institutions and the difficulty with click through agreements like Google Market Place. 

 

Google contends that even though they market Google e-mail to education, the Google Market Place is a commercial product and they refuse to alter the state of governing  law language in the contract.  And that agreement only gets you in the door.  You then have to contend with the rest of the App contracts  We all know that individuals don’t read EULAs but when you a have a mail administrator clicking through on behalf of a university domain, that really ramps  up the liability. 

 

Thank you.

We are currently dealing with an issue of a 3rd party EULA that popped up from within a Microsoft application, and neither Microsoft nor the vendor know where it came from.  Supposedly it had something to do with a "proposed" relationship that was never entered into, and both the vendor and Microsoft are basically disowning the agreement and say it's non-binding, but we still have to agree to it in the click-through to install the application.

Madness.

Y'know --- now that you re-sent this, I do remember seeing it already.

I totally agree with you that this is a big problem!

(Unfortunately due to an airline ticketing snafu - entirely my own fault - I won't be arriving until the LICENSING meeting is over, SIGH.)  But I'll be there "in spirit" for this discussion!

That wouldn't happen to be Adobe AIR would it?  That seems to be embedded in the Yammer (now owned by Microsoft) application (something I had a problem with too).

It is apparently for a support agreement for CentOS by OpenLogic.  This is as clear a statement as I was able to get from the vendor.
"So we had started setting up something with Microsoft that if someone wants support for CentOS on their Azure image in their gallery, then they could purchase through us and license would be applicable.   However, we don't have that finalized and if you need support for CentOS you come directly through us.  Unfortunately, we can't control that link since it's not on our web site, so it doesn't apply to us."

Good Night Nurse!

I started to write what I really think about some of the junky contract documents I've been seeing lately ... and then thought the better of it.

I will say that it is completely unfair for software vendors to just leave "construction debris" laying around in their software and/or contract documents and leave it up to their customers to discover this stuff and clean up after them.

Good discussion topics for EDUCAUSE.

These topics all look spot on to me.  I expect to be there so can’t speak for those who can’t, but it would seem like broadcasting would have limited return for the effort unless it could be recorded, which seems from the schedule like a fairly high bar. . .
