  • Customers Share Practical Guidance with Gartner ITAM Attendees

    Earlier this week, nearly 25% of the 500 or so attendees listened in to the Microsoft Solution Provider Session at the Gartner ITAM Conference here in Orlando, Florida. We were honored to have two customer spokespeople participate in the hour long presentation entitled, “Best Practices for On Premises and Cloud Asset Management” helping make the session the best attended for the day.

    The customer perspective shared by Dr. Joel Hartman, CIO and Vice Provost for IT and Resources for University of Central Florida and Kathy Porter, Manager, Vice President of IT Asset Management for U.S. Bank was invaluable in helping transform the theory of best practices into tangible, real world examples.
