eBook: Partnering for ITAM Success

Delivering ITAM excellence for your organization


There are many routes to acheive ITAM excellence, from performing every task in-house to outsourcing the whole program. But which approach is right for you?

With software spend continuing to rise, new ways to deploy and consume applications and more people empowered to make technology purchasing decisions, the need for Software Portfolio Management (SPM) in your organization is greater than ever.

At the same time, there’s both a confusion as to what ‘good ITAM’ looks like as well as a global shortage in the availability of key ITAM skills, from best practices and program management to tools administration, licensing expertise and data processing know-how.

To achieve ITAM success, most organizations (even if you've invested in a SAM tool) will need to partner with an external technology and/or services provider.  But what type is right for you? 

Livingstone Group's ITAM Partner guide explores:

  • The different types of partners available to you
  • How to select the right one for your individual needs and circumstances. 
  • Pros and cons of different types of partners
  • questions that you need to ask both your potential partners and yourself.
