EléeITS Partners and RAY ALLEN, Inc. become ITAM Forum Patrons

Momentum continues as the ITAM Forum celebrates its 1-year anniversary.

The ITAM Forum is pleased to announce that it has gained three new patrons that share its vision to grow, advance and elevate the global IT Asset Management industry. 

Elée, a France-based, independent managed services provider of SAM and cloud computing solutions, ITS Partners, a USA-based strategic ServiceNow Elite partner, and RAY ALLEN, Inc., a USA-based, ITAM managed services provider, join eight other patrons committed to helping the Forum achieve its goals. 

Founded in April 2020, the ITAM Forum is an independent, not-for-profit professional body led by ITAM professionals for ITAM professionals. It aims to promote the ITAM discipline by focusing on the business benefits and value gained through ITAM and by creating, and being a caretaker of, a new ISO 19770 standard certification program. 

Martin Thompson, founder of the ITAM Forum, comments, “Gaining our ninth, tenth and eleventh patron is a real testament to the desire within our industry for an organisation such as this. I would like to thank Elée, ITS Partners, and RAY ALLEN, Inc. for their support and for believing in the goals of the Forum. The ITAM Forum would simply not exist if it wasn’t for the generous financial support of our patrons.”

Yvette Mathews, Vice President of Services at ITS Partners comments, “We are thrilled to join the ITAM Forum and are looking forward to collaborating with other ITAM practitioners and organizations. We are excited to share our years of experience with the group as well as sharing our customer feedback on best practices and the ISO standard.”

Todd Ringleman, CEO and Founder of RAY ALLEN, Inc. comments, “We are very excited to join the ITAM Forum. We’re at a pivotal moment in the IT Industry where ITAM best practices, standards and certifications have become a pre-requisite for successful digital business. We look forward to collaborating with other ITAM professionals to drive adoption of the new ISO 19770 standard certification program.”

These new patrons join the ITAM Forum as it celebrates its first-year anniversary. Reflecting on this milestone, Thompson said: “The Forum started just as the pandemic hit, creating much uncertainty. I’m really proud to say we now have more than 200 members, an active board of trustees that meets every month, eleven patrons, and four work streams focused on specific tasks. Everyone who contributes to the Forum does so on a voluntary basis, so I would like to thank each and every one of them for giving their time to help their industry.”
