The ITAM Review returns with our fourth annual US ITAM conference at the marvellous University of South Florida, St.Petersburg – with a focus on taking ITAM beyond IT.
About this event
The COVID-19 pandemic means, like everyone else, we’ve had to swiftly change our plans. Our regular US in-person event is now a virtual conference and we’re excited to announce Wisdom Online North America 2020 which will run from 29th September – 1st October 2020. While it will be different, we’re excited about the opportunities it offers to help us spread the ITAM goodness even further than has been possible before.
We’ve widened the conference focus to North America – now there’s no travel involved, everyone can attend Wisdom Online! As well as all the wonderful speakers we already had planned, our aim now is to have speakers and topics from various North America locations, covering topics relevant to different areas.
We know that person-to-person networking is a big part of attending conferences and we’re doing everything we can to keep that going online via our conference platform.
Our in-person training courses will be delivered online too. Dates for the Microsoft & Oracle courses will be available for you to book ASAP.
If you’re already booked to attend the in-person Wisdom US event as a delegate, speaker or sponsor and haven’t heard from us, please get in contact.
ITAM is an ever-growing, and ever changing, discipline. There is always a new challenge around the corner – be that:
- New technologies like SaaS, IaaS, Containers, Internet of Things and more
- Vendors with a new – or renewed – focus on software audits
- Evolving license models, metrics, and rules from various vendors
- Shifts in internal politics, focus and culture
As an ITAM professional, there are 2 key things to be aware of: you can never know everything and keeping up to date is key. However, keeping current can be difficult for 3 main reasons:
- Where do you focus?
- Where do you find the information?
- Where do you find the time?
And that’s where ITAM Review Wisdom aims to help.
We talk with people all over the globe – software vendors, resellers, tool vendors, C-suite execs, SAM/HAM/ITAM professionals, consultants, analysts and more – as well as conduct our own extensive research, and this enables us to identify the critical areas for ITAM professionals.
Each Wisdom conference is filled with carefully selected speakers whose topics and stories will help you grow and progress in your ITAM career – perhaps you’ll get that one piece of info you need to make a breakthrough, the knowledge to solve that tricky licensing problem, or the right way to engage your stakeholders – whatever it is, we help bring that information to you.
While we can’t give you more time (if only we could!), we CAN ensure that your time spent with us at Wisdom will be as useful as possible. As well as the dozens of sessions, we make sure there’s plenty of opportunities to network with your peers, arrange 1-1 conversations with speakers, sponsors, and ITAM Review analysts via our online platform.

Testimonials and reviews
Some previous conference delegate feedback:
‘This was by far the best event I’ve been to and I got so much out of going, more than I ever expected. I would recommend it to everyone in our industry. For me personally both my ITAM roles have been basically me left to my own devices to build ITAM functions from scratch so it was a great confidence boost to hear the experts talk about this and describe pretty much what I had done, sort of validating that I had done things the right way, and it was brilliant to meet a community of people who enjoy talking about ITAM and SAM as much as I do! Thanks again for putting on an amazing event’
