Session Title:  Positioning ITAM for future success

Description:  New technology comes at us every year like a firehose.  Throw in a global pandemic and an economy under pressure, and business priorities go into survival mode.  ITAM teams need to fortify themselves in resilient programs ready for any occasion, while positioning for scale at the other end.  The most effective path to future success is to not go at it alone.

ITAM practices have their hands full daily with cost optimization and risk mitigation across software, hardware and clouds.  But when ITAM is on the same platform as IT, the world of work gets better. A single platform enables ITAM process automation for the full IT lifecycle, freeing up your team for new tasks.  Work that flows freely between departments gets done. Strengthen business resilience in any economy with a single Platform for IT, so work can flow.

In this session, you  will learn:

  • Where to position your ITAM career for future success
  • How to automate the full IT lifecycle
  • How to connect stakeholders with workflow so work gets done
