We are very pleased to announce our first events in the USA. Please reserve these dates in your diary; further details will follow over the coming weeks.
USA readers represent our largest audience, so we’re keen to come and meet you in January 2015 with three specialist ITAM events.
The content and focus of these events are based on your feedback; we hope you find them useful. Events in other major cities in the USA will follow later in 2015.
All three events will be held at Baruch College, New York, close to Times Square.

SAM Best Practice Workshop ($499, Early bird $349)
This one day interactive workshop will allow delegates the opportunity to discuss their issues or interest around SAM in an open and confidential setting.
The day will start with a brief introduction to SAM best practices and ‘Audit Readiness’. The floor will then be open to those attending to discuss individual issues. This workshop will be scenario driven – you bring your scenarios and we work through them.
This is a great opportunity to gain access to some shared knowledge from your peers on how to address issues specific to you. We’re confident you’ll learn from other people’s scenarios as well as your own. Chatham House / Confidentiality rules apply and the workshop is limited to 15 delegates to ensure a close-knit group dynamic.

ITAM Tools Showcase and Networking (Free)
Are your ITAM tools keeping pace with technological change, licensing complexity, audit requests and increasing pressure for financial transparency?
On the 28th January 2015, The ITAM Review will be hosting a truly unique ITAM focused event – offering organizations the opportunity to hear directly from leading SAM and ITAM tool providers about their tools and experiences in the market.
This is a unique opportunity to get up to speed on the latest developments in ITAM tools innovation, raise queries with software tool vendors directly and connect with industry peers.
Thursday 29th January 2015
Oracle Licensing and Audits Seminar (Free)
Are your cryptic Oracle license agreements and the lack of support provided by the Oracle LMS team getting you in a knot?
Oracle licensing is one of the greatest software investments you are likely to make – yet ITAM Review readers tell us Oracle is where you often experience mind-bending license complexity and the harshest of compliance risks.
Attend this event for invaluable presentations from our expert industry speakers and take part in interactive workshops to define the agenda for change with Oracle.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
