ITAM is on the move
Originally thought of as a back office IT responsibility or something associated with CMDB (configuration management database) and the Service Desk, ITAM is now starting to come out of the shadows and take a centre stage position. Perhaps it’s because of digital transformation. Or, maybe it’s because of the ever-increasing focus on cyber security. Possibly, it’s because every business – and every department within every business – is now an IT-enabled business. The reasons are numerous, and to us ITAM professionals, well, we’re just thrilled.
ITAM is a rewarding career
- It offers an abundance of truly, interesting opportunities.
- It gives you a solid reason to engage with stakeholders across your organisation – inside IT, outside IT and all the way up to the C-suite.
- It lets you contribute to your company’s success and bottom line.
- It showcases to others the value and benefits your work delivers.
Whether you’re early in your career, thinking about switching careers, or applying for your first ITAM role, find out what makes ITAM an exciting career choice.
“You don’t often find a role within a company that in the course of a day, lets you talk to the CIO in the morning, talk to a desktop technician in the afternoon and in the middle, save $100,000 for your company.”
Brett Zurbrick — ITAM Forum Trustee
“ITAM is one of the few areas where you get a mix of technology and business. There aren’t that many disciplines within IT itself that have the exposure to other areas of the business and the opportunity to influence these other areas. It can even take you into different career paths outside of IT that you may have not even thought of.”
