Podcast Episode 88: Looking into Containers

Containers are fast becoming a hot topic for many of us in ITAM. As DevOps practices, cloud, and digital transformation continue to expand within organisations, containers are being used more and more often – in a few different ways.

To help you get a better picture of what’s involved, I sat down with Kim Weins, VP of Cloud Strategy at Flexera to talk about what they are, how they’re being used, and how you can start to manage them. We also discussed a range of other topics including:

  • Partnering with internal stakeholders i.e. security and finance
  • Future of ITAM
  • Cloud risks
  • From license compliance to cost management
  • Aligning with business objectives

I’d love to hear your thoughts and questions around this subject so please comment below or drop me an email/LinkedIn message

Alongside this, Flexera are looking for ITAM professionals to get involved with their latest survey which will gather the latest in ITAM trends and best practices including ITAM maturity, organizational approaches to managing ITAM, vendor use, and spend. Additionally, qualified survey participants will receive a $25 Amazon gift card from Flexera.
