About

The business adoption of cloud continues to increase – organisations are spending more money on more services in more clouds and show no signs of slowing down.

The growth of cloud presents several opportunities for ITAM to become more aligned with, and integral to, your organization’s goals and priorities. If managed correctly, increased spend on SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS can lead to increased importance and stature for ITAM.

However, to do this, ITAM professionals must embrace the cloud and identify:

  • How you can add value
  • Who this is important to
  • When and where you can show impact

And effectively communicate, and demonstrate, the benefits that ITAM provides.

Although not a new subject, cloud technology is constantly changing and evolving – meaning ITAM professionals must ensure that they are aware of new risks and opportunities. The level of wasted spend in the public cloud remains high while the occurrence of security breaches is increasing, meaning cloud remains at the top of CIO priority lists.

Join Rich Gibbons and AJ Witt from The ITAM Review on Thursday 27th October 2022 at 2pm GMT for the 3rd annual ITAM Review Cloud Summit, which aims to highlight the latest trends, tools, and tricks to help ITAM managers successfully navigate the journey to the cloud.

Topics on the day will include:

  • SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS
  • Cloud cost management
  • ITAM + FinOps
  • Bring Your Own Licensing (BYOL)
  • Cloud vendor market & strategies
  • How to inventory the cloud & containers
  • How ITAM boosts security in the cloud
  • Emerging cloud technologies
  • Cloud and sustainability
  • Stakeholder engagement & cross-functional working
