About this event

The ITAM Review returns with its fourth UK annual conference on 5th & 6th June 2019 at Twickenham Stadium, London with a focus on taking ITAM beyond IT.

Wisdom reflects the quality of our expert speakers and the practical advice available to attendees of our worldwide conference events, distilling the essence of those events into a single word. We’re proud of the quality of our events and we hope that adopting this common identity for all our conferences will help you to easily identify and select your favourite ITAM event.

Taking ITAM beyond IT

As our roles grow in seniority and technology changes our scope increases and the conference will equip you to grasp those opportunities. We are focused on helping you take ITAM beyond IT, working with new and more senior stakeholders whilst also adjusting to the challenges of managing new asset types. 

We have three tracks this year – Stakeholder Engagement, Hybrid Cloud Management, and Sharing our Successes. Throughout the conference there will be a focus on practical advice and application of real-world experience with the aim of helping you progress your careers. 

The Stakeholder Engagement track will equip you with the skills to work effectively with the new stakeholders that new technology brings. Also expect sessions on how ITAM can help drive business efforts to meet security, financial audit, and compliance challenges. 

Hybrid Cloud Management will focus on managing Public Cloud, SaaS, and hybrid datacentres along with new deployment methodologies such as DevOps, Digital Transformation, and Internet-of-Things. 

Sharing our Success aims to bring you stories from the ITAM front line – more to come on this track in a separate article because it really deserves our focus. We undoubtedly don’t do enough to shout our achievements from the rooftops and positive stories breed success. 

Our expert speakers will be discussing topics including:

• Success/struggles around managing public cloud (IaaS) like Azure or AWS
• Choosing an IaaS and/or SaaS management tool
• How Cyber Security can impact ITAM (or vice versa)
• How ITAM can better work with finance to address SaaS and IaaS risk
• Hardware Asset Management
• Should ITAM look after systems patching
• Internet of Things (IoT) and ITAM
