Join Rich Gibbons from The ITAM Review, Cyndi Tackett & Brian Adler from Flexera on Thursday 27th May at 4pm UK time where they will discuss how IaaS (aka Public Cloud) is an integral element for modern IT Asset Management.
Being involved with IaaS strategy and management within your organisation can help ITAM better align with corporate values and strategic direction whilst also offering an opportunity to raise the profile of ITAM and gain executive buy-in.
In a discussion that combines data from Flexera’s recent ‘State of the Cloud 2021” report, analyst opinion, and feedback from end users, our speakers will discuss topics including:
Rich has almost 15 years’ experience in the world of IT and software licensing, having been both a software sales manager for a VAR and a Microsoft licensing endorsed trainer.
A Northerner renowned for his shirts, Rich is a fan of most films, Hip-Hop, travel, football in general (and specifically MUFC), Marvel and reading as many books as possible. Finding ways to combine these with software licensing is always fun.
