About this event

As technology and customer expectations continue to evolve, understanding how ITAM and FinOps can best collaborate and support each other can be the key to unlocking business success.

For most organisations across the globe, hybrid infrastructure that is both on-premises and in the cloud is the way forward. Both areas have their own specialisations, quirks, and growth paths – ensuring you are combining all the available resources, knowledge, and skills within your organisation is how you can realise the maximum savings, growth, and advancement.

Join ITAM Review, Snow Software and the FinOps Foundation in this free Tech Talk series of 3 x 20 sessions as we bring you insights from FinOps practitioners, data on focus areas, and a breakdown of key topics such as Unit Economics, sustainability, and stakeholder engagement.
