Rich Gibbons sits down with experts from SoftwareONE – Kevin Hooton & Shadi Khoshab – who make predictions on what’s next in software management and discuss what you can do now and in the future to increase cost savings.
Back in 2018, Kevin made a set of predictions about where SAM would be in the year 2022 and, given the impact COVID-19 has had across industries, we thought it would be interesting to revisit those predictions at the halfway point that is 2020.
We discussed a range of topics including:
- The ROI of SAM programs
- Whether ITAM is viewed as a strategic part of the business
- How to make cost savings
- The justification for SAM
- Optimising cloud costs
- Gaining visibility into IaaS environments
- Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
And looked at how well the original predictions have stood the test of time, and COVID-19!
