The ITAM Review

News, reviews and resources for worldwide ITAM, SAM and Licensing professionals.

Podcast episode 83: COVID-19 and ITAM

We’re at least 3 months into the COVID-19 outbreak and still learning more details about the virus on a regular basis. This is also the case for businesses – everyone is still working to understand exactly what the impact is for them, how they can mitigate it, and what the long-terms effects might be.

In this podcast, ITAM Review’s Rich Gibbons speaks with a range of specialists from across the industry ahead of our upcoming Wisdom Online EMEA conference. This fast paced, interesting discussion gives a range of viewpoints on what ITAM needs to be focusing on now, and in the months ahead, to help organisations come through this as well as possible.
