ITAMantics - November 2023
This month Rich, George and AJ tackle the biggest stories to rock the ITAM World in November. Note that the BIGGEST story of the month happened the day after we recorded this, so there is no mention of Flexera announcing its intention to acquire Snow Software. We'll give that plenty of airtime in the December episode...
Stories tackled this month are:
- Atlassian buys AirTrack: Consolidation Down Under
- AI Driving 2024 IT Agenda: Snow Software report
- Draft of the ITAM Review Microsoft Certification
- What ITAM can learn from contract management: Lessons from Schiphol Airport
- Harnessing the power of Microsoft Copilot: A guide for business decision makers
