About this event

Several key software vendors closed their financial years towards the end of 2022 including:

  • Amazon AWS
  • Google Cloud
  • IBM
  • SAP
  • VMware

Join the ITAM Review on Thursday 2nd March 2022 at 2pm GMT as we discuss how these organisations weathered the ups and downs of 2022 and what to expect from them in 2023 – including audits, product focus areas, licensing and more.

Knowing where these software publishers are coming from, and where they are going, will help you – and other internal stakeholders such as procurement and finance – best understand where potential risks may lie and successfully manage the relationship for another year.

As well as industry analysis and forecasts from the ITAM Review, this Online Summit will also feature relevant sessions from a range of our partners, detailing some of the key challenges you can face when using software and services from these publishers– and how to manage them too!

Session Title: Managing Open Source: Why it should be in scope for your ITAM practice

Description: Open source has penetrated more than 90% of all global organizations across internal applications, and commercial or customer facing systems. While open source has its advantages, it also poses a security and operational risks to organizations due to the lack of visibility into what and where code is embedded, and the lack of warranty, relaxed integrations, and IP issues. In this session, we’ll learn more about why open source is the next frontier for ITAM professionals, and learn about the tools, data, processes, and governance needed to address this high priority risk.
