We’ve widened the conference focus to EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) – 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 EMEA locations, covering topics relevant to different areas – and in local languages where possible too.
Our in-person training courses will be delivered online too. Dates for the Microsoft licensing and Audit Defence courses will be available for you to book ASAP.
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.
ITAM is an ever-growing, and ever changing, discipline. There is always a new challenge around the corner – be that:
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:
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.
