Deloitte has published the results of a global ITAM survey. It’s a fascinating insight into modern ITAM and is probably the largest study of it’s type I’ve seen whilst writing for the ITAM Review (2,500 across 18 countries), with most senior respondents (Nearly 1/3 Board member, C-Suite or Senior Management).
Deloitte ITAM Survey – Points of interest:
The study also discusses an interesting point regarding the position of ITAM teams within companies, noting the trend of ITAM teams increasingly working outside the IT department helping other functional teams with ITAM.
“The primary objective of ITAM teams is to enable their organization to maximize the value of their technology investments, whether deployed on-premise or on the cloud. This puts ITAM teams whose primary alignment is to IT teams (given the increasing technical complexity that is creeping into this discipline over the years), in an interesting position. This is because opportunities for creating value to the business can be maximized only by managing the “business side” of IT by working more closely with key functional teams such as finance, procurement, risk management, etc. as well as the business units themselves which utilize the various organizational IT elements.”
An interesting study, something I hope Deloitte will repeat.
