Who We Are
Hello and thank you for visiting the ITAM Review, an Online Magazine, Forum and Networking Platform for ITAM Professionals.
We are 100% privately owned, vendor and service provider independent and impartial. Our purpose is to provide an independent, unbiased view of the SAM, ITAM and Software Licensing market and to provide a community for everyone in the industry to share their expertise, feedback and opinions of the technology and services in the market for the benefit of others.
What We Do
The ITAM Review hosts events, provides education and independently verifies tools and service providers.
As of August 2016 The ITAM Review receives 1.3 million visitors a year.

The ITAM Review wants to hear from all ITAM practitioners from all countries and backgrounds; the only thing we ask is that it’s not a sales pitch for your products and services – let your expertise do the talking!
