I am pleased to announce a new project with the Infrastructure Executive Council (IEC) to research ITAM best practices for their members.
The IEC works by talking to its member base about their most pressing issues. It then establishes which members are producing the best results and shares methods with peers. Help is provided in the form of research studies, briefs and decision support tools.
I like their approach. They are independent, vendor neutral and only serve their members. Also – why reinvent the wheel with ITAM when someone out there has already cracked it?
The IEC is part of Corporate Executive Board (NASDAQ: EXBD). The member network spans 50 countries and represents more than 80% of the Fortune 500 and 70% of the FTSE 100. You can see more about them here.
IT Asset Management has been identified as a priority for IEC members. I look forward to working with the team at IEC and learning from the experiences of their members.
To register for updates regarding my work with the IEC please subscribe using the form at the top right of this page.
If you have an interesting project on the horizon that requires independent, vendor neutral input please contact me.
