Are you an ITAM tools vendor? Do you provide ITAM Managed Services? Are you a user of an innovative ITAM Tool or Service?

If so, we’re looking for nominations in the ITAM Technology & Service Innovation category of the ITAM Review Excellence Awards, and time is running out. Get your nominations in by the end of September – you can submit them via this link. And yes, vendors – you can self-nominate! We know how difficult it can be to get customers to go on the record, even if you’re providing a great tool or service.

The winner of this award will have have swum against the stream to deliver something innovative and unique for their customers. As the environments we manage change we need new approaches to challenges such as privacy, stakeholder management, patching, SaaS sprawl, and the constant threat of security breaches. The modern ITAM practice has a role to play in all these arenas, but we need the tools and services to support us.

Why Nominate?

Last year’s winner of the Innovation Award, Astute Licensing, said this;

“Winning the innovation of the year award, as chosen by a group of our leading peers in the industry whilst up against some strong opposition from industry leaders has meant a great deal to us. Bringing change and innovation to an established industry is never an easy thing to do, receiving support in this way has provided a huge source of inspiration to continue our battle to make this industry risk free, permanently.”

The nature of innovation means that new entrants and niche players have a real chance of winning, even up against established players. We’re looking for the best pioneering technologies, techniques, or approaches to ITAM problems – and we encourage organisations of any size and from any location to enter.

The final decision will be made by our panel of judges: Kylie Fowler, Jochen Hagenlocher, Rachel Ryan, AJ Witt and head judge Colin Simmons. Winners will be announced at the 2018 ITAM Review Excellence Awards Gala Dinner at the Hilton London Heathrow Terminal 5 on Friday 16th November.
