We just registered as one of the sponsors for the LabMan 2014 conference, to be held June 2-4 this year on the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) campus. This is the 15th year that the conference has brought together computer lab managers from across the country and we are looking forward to being there. It was very rewarding to participate in LabMan 2013 where we received new insights from people unfamiliar with K2 along with valuable feedback from long time customers. Our thanks to everyone who participated in our co-presentation with Rip Heminway from Evergreen State College.
At this year’s conference, John Tomeny from Sassafras will co-present a Case Study with Matthew Buk, Computer Facilities Supervisor at UNLV, on the use of K2 at UNLV. John is well known by many customers for his K2 configuration training workshops and 1-on-1 customer consultations, and for his expertise in IT Asset Management and Software Asset Management (ITAM/SAM). Matthew is a long time LabMan participant and is currently co-chair of the 2014 LabMan planning committee. His experience with K2 began over 10 years ago as a UNLV student employee doing simple client installations. Now he manages the K2 KeyServer as Lead Supervisor for UNLV’s Computer Labs.
New K2 Dashboard and Subscription Licensing to be Highlighted
Among the new K2 features (currently in beta) that we will highlight at LabMan will be a much requested Dashboard reporting console with its many new high-level analytical reports and drill-down capabilities. K2’s Dashboard integrates a configurable web management console directly with KeyServer so things like creating custom lab maps, status reports, analytics, warnings, etc. is simplified. We will also demonstrate new management and reporting support for user-based subscription licensing such as Adobe Creative Cloud (plus a few other tricks that we’ll reveal closer to conference).
We hope you can join us at LabMan 2014 to learn how to optimize K2 configuration for software license compliance and IT cost reduction.
