New ITAM discussion board

I am pleased to announce a new online discussion board for the IT Asset Management industry. (Please note joining instructions below)

Sadly we had to retire the old ITAM Review discussion board due to a combination of unmanageable levels of spam and login/authentication issues.

We launched the previous discussion board prior to the launch of the PITAM course back in 2015. Thank you to everyone who helped, contributing towards hundreds of questions over the years, with a peak of around 5,000 visitors a month. The questions and answers have been preserved and we’ll look into making use of these in the future.

I am pleased to announce a new discussion board is being hosted by ITAM Forum here: (Please note joining instructions below)

ITAM Forum is a new, global, trade body for the advancement of the IT Asset Management industry. A not-for-profit membership organisation, led by ITAM professionals for ITAM professionals.

The new system is built by the company that runs StackOverflow, with a heavy emphasis towards building trust and reputation – and therefore significantly reducing spam.

Please make use of this free industry resource to answer any questions you might have about all things IT Asset Management, Software Asset Management, Hardware Asset Management, Cloud and Software Licensing and we’ll make sure that specialists from around the world can help you.

In an industry where experience and knowledge are everything, it’s a great place to showcase your wisdom to others whilst helping your peers.

Thanks in advance for your help.
