Contract Management: An Imperative for Successful ITAM

With the explosion of “As A Service” relationships and web-based URL Agreements, the ITAM profession is now faced, as never before, with a contractual expertise challenge. This is something that historically, has lived silos between Legal, Vendor Management and associated Administrative resources. This keynote will outline those contract management attributes that will need to become critical success factors for successful ITAM in the next 3 years.

IT As Business: Successful Financial Tools and Metrics for Valuing IT

For many years the most successful and profitable IT organizations are those that have effective, flexible and resilient financial practices based on a sound foundation of historical and best practice financial principles. This keynote will address the sound baseline financial practices as well as such metrics as Chargeback, CAPX-OPEX, Fixed Assets and ITAM variables. With a look at the future, it will also cover what will be the most fruitful financial practices for IT valuation.

11:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Technology Protection Management: Beyond ITAM, Cybersecurity and Cloud

In that IAITAM feels this may have an enormous effect on IT in the future, this keynote will look beyond just “assuming and presuming” that IT will always be available in some way shape or form. It will include but not be limited to backup, redundancy, electrical grid outages, etc. What will happen if we lose these critical “feeders” of IT? Who is concerned and working these issues at this time? What will your organization do if all these things are gone for a short or long period of time? Will your organization be able to function? All these questions and more will be addressed during this keynote.
