About this event

This webinar was presented live by Martin Thompson and Geoff Worsley from Aspera on Wednesday 13th September. This was the eighth webinar in the series of ITAM in the Cloud Era.


SAM in the subscription economy – automating SaaS apps whilst maintaining governance


Join this educational webinar from Martin Thompson and Geoff Worsley on addressing governance in the subscription economy.
The session will include the business case and risks of managing SaaS apps, automating management of subscription based assets and technical ideas for building a holistic solution to manage changes.
The webinar will also embrace the modern reality that a growing proportion of IT spend, especially for turnkey SaaS apps, is likely to be outside the IT department and how ITAM Review readers should collaborate with these stakeholders.
