About this event

This webinar has now taken place.


Join The ITAM Review’s Rich Gibbons for a live webinar on Thursday 17 October 2019 at 4pm BST.


Cost management is a key part of successful ITAM on-premises; this becomes even more important once your assets move to the cloud, where costs increase on a per hour/minute/second basis.

As the range of cloud services continues to grow, and more people become aware of the possible benefits of utilising cloud resources, the need for strong asset management becomes ever more urgent. Getting a handle on your organisation’s cloud spend is key – but what options are available to you to help control this new asset frontier?

Hear from the ITAM Review’s Rich Gibbons as he journeys into the cloud and explores topics including:

  • Similarities/differences of Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, & Google Cloud Platform
  • Cloud stakeholders
  • Where ITAM should draw the line

Learning Objectives
