A week and a half after Dick Costolo announced that he would be stepping down from the CEO role at Twitter, the company´s board of directors has sent a shot across the bow of one of the expected front runner candidates to take the social network´s top job. The social micro blogging company´s search committee will only consider CEO candidates who are in a position to make a full time commitment to Twitter, the board said.That would seem to rule out Jack Dorsey, the company´s co founder who currently works as the CEO of Square and will be filling in as interim CEO of Twitter. Dorsey has said that he plans to remain at the helm of the payment processing company he co founded, but has not explicitly ruled out a bid for a permanent berth in Twitter´s top job. Now the Twitter board has made it clear that he would have to depart Square if he wants to run Twitter. That is a rough proposition for Dorsey, especially since Square is reportedly planning to go public this year. As for the overall search process, Twitter´s search committee has contracted with executive search firm Spencer Stuart to evaluate internal and external candidates for the job. The board has not set a firm time frame for its hiring of a new CEO, saying that there is a sense of urgency to the process but that it will take its time to find the right person for the job. Whoever steps into the top spot at Twitter will have to contend with increased pressure on the company from Wall Street. Investors have been disappointed by Twitter´s revenue and user growth in recent quarters. See more here

Software Asset Management (SAM), which incorporates a set of proven processes and procedures for managing and optimising an organisation´s information technology assets, is becoming more familiar to Vietnamese businesses.
VIR´s Hoang Anh talked to Max Orellana, regional licensing compliance director of Microsoft APAC, and Ilya Anzhiganov, business development manager of Softline in Southeast Asia, about to how to implement a SAM plan successfully.
What are the roles of a SAM system and why do businesses need to consider to build SAM?
Max Orellana: In an ever-changing global marketplace, companies are looking for every opportunity to gain a competitive advantage and simultaneously grow revenue, profits, and customer loyalty. Meanwhile, new regulatory requirements, competitive pressures brought on by an increasingly connected global economy, and technologies that ¨level the playing field¨ for companies of all sizes are making it more difficult for companies to stay ahead.
In this environment, the role of information technology (IT) is rapidly becoming a key strategic asset to support and drive innovation, profitability, and customer satisfaction. On one hand, increasing IT complexity has made it more difficult and costly to manage a company´s infrastructure and platform. On the other hand, the promise of strategic advantage a company can achieve through technology is driving new wave of IT investment.
All of the infrastructure and processes necessary for the effective management, control and protection of the software assets within an organisation, throughout all stages of their lifecycle.
As SAM is a global industry standard which endorsed by Microsoft and many others. SAM will help an organisation to control cost and risks, optimise resource and grow with technology.
SAM programmes should be critical part of any business´s strategic planning. As licences have become more complicated and their types have multiplied, managing them and the software to which they apply can produce lasting business value. SAM programmes implemented as part of your ongoing management practices not only ensure that software assets are accurately identified and legally deployed, but that they are used efficiently and cost effectively to support your key IT and business initiatives.
What are specific benefits if businesses implement SAM?
Ilya Anzhiganov: The main benefit from SAM is effective business processes. It´s on the top. These processes allow a company to reduce costs and decrease legal risks. Companies spend a lot of money for software. But SAM answers the question if there is the reason to pay such money. And of course SAM allows us to use only legal software.
How has SAM been implemented in Vietnam and what are your business plan in the Vietnamese market?
Ilya Anzhiganov: At this moment we´ve finished three small SAM projects in Vietnam. Softline as a global company has got huge experience in SAM practice. We were the winner in SAM category globally at Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in 2011. So now we are going to roll out our practice in Vietnam. We see a lot of opportunities in this market.
It depends on what kind of services you choose and what kind of tools you prefer. The reality is that a lot of companies don´t need full cycle SAM processes. They need for instance just software inventory and licence compliance (software verification). It´s not full cycle SAM, but that helps companies get benefits. If we look at business processes we need high level price business consultants to create processes and describe it. Of course all of it affects on price.
