ITAM Review plans for 2016

We’ve got a lot planned in 2016.

This is a quick round up of our plans for research, reviews and events for the year.

Research Projects

Independent open research projects covering the ITAM market.

  • The role of the big four audit firms in the software industry (in conjunction with the Campaign for Clear Licensing)
  • Software vendor audit activity –  revisiting our previous research from 2010
  • Salary Survey 2016 – revisiting our 2014 salary survey to monitor salary performance in the ITAM industry
  • ITAM integration – digging into tangible examples in the field of ITAM being embedded across the whole IT department (ITSM, Procurement, Security and so on) 

Group Tests

Competitive product reviews for a specific use case.

  • Enterprise SAM Tools – underway here
  • Datacentre Discovery Tools – discovery and inventory tools for datacentre environments (Datacentre, Virtual/Cloud, Environmental measurement / configuration for Windows, Linux, Unix)
  • ServiceNow SAM Plug-Ins – The $BN dollar ITSM platform doesn’t do SAM – so which tools can help?
  • SCCM Plug-Ins – revisiting our previous SCCM group test from 2012
  • SaaS Consumption – Tracking SaaS / Services consumption (User/Ownership / Consumption)

Notes on Group Tests:

  • There is no charge to participate in Group Tests
  • Suppliers will need a listing on Tools Advisor to participate (no charge)
  • Suppliers will need at least five (5) published reviews from customers on Tools Advisor (again, no charge) to participate
