Webinar Series: Exploring ITAM’s past, present, and future

In this unique webinar series, we’ll explore the past, present, and future of ITAM. In the first session on Thursday 11th November, we will look at the past and present of key areas including compliance, cost, security, and risk and how your role with asset management plays with each.   In our second webinar on Thursday 2nd December, we’ll have a conversation about what ITAM will look like in 5-7 years, the future of cloud technologies, who you’ll need to align with for success, and the steps you can take to prepare yourself and your organization. In both webinars, we’ll discuss the skills and relationships needed to elevate ITAM and your role in the future.

Part 1ITAM’s present – is it all about spending, compliance, and risk?

In this first webinar, we’ll explore compliance, cost, risk, security, and how asset management makes a difference for each. We’ll look at ITAM’s past to understand how we’ve reached the present and consider how businesses are changing. Across organizations, ITAM can be a driving force in many areas but understanding where you are and where you’re going is key. We’ll also consider how to build and maintain the skills and relationships that will help us address the ongoing move to the cloud and hybrid working.

A few conversations you’ll want to be a part of include:

  • Compliance – is it getting easier?
  • How does automation and machine learning help?
  • What steps will help you strengthen security and avert risk?
  • Three things that will help you move to the cloud
  • Actions you can take to keep at the top of your ITAM game

Join Rich Gibbons, ITAM Review and Adam Smith-Cairns at ServiceNow on Thursday 11th November at 4pm GMT as they discuss the strengths of ITAM in the enterprise and how we can continue to evolve and change as our organizations transform.
