Process of the Month: Dear All, Another short blog this week as the “conspiracy of life” keeps me well away from my blogging responsibilities. I just wanted to write a few words to promote a new initiative in association with The ITAM Review. Martin Thompson has kindly given me the space to write a new feature called Software Asset Management Process of the Month. Every 30 days or so, I will be offering what I believe various Software Asset Management processes should have included in their function steps.
Feedback is more than welcome, and the article will be posted on the ITAM Review website as well as the ITAM Review Networking Group on Linkedin.
There is downloadable material around each process which is free to access once you have subscribed to The ITAM Review. Technical difficulties currently abound, so if you do struggle trying to make sense of the downloads, then please email me at: [email protected] and I will send the relevant files asap.
April 2023 – Update:
I’m delighted to announce that after a collaboration with Kylie Fowler of ITAM Intelligence, a new brand has been created in the ITAM space – namely: ITAM Accelerate. Here you will find some 44 ITAM processes (32 SAM, 12 HAM) and one use-case of a Software Vendor Audit Process built into a compendium of quality workflows. Crafted using the ARIS process design methodology and saved in MS Visio, the processes are ideal for any organisation wishing to progress their ITAM maturity. As a sidebar, we are seeing particular interest from organisations who have bought ServiceNow SAMPro, but then discover that the workflows between SAMPro and the ServiceNow CMDB don’t ship with the product.
To read up on how the ITAM Accelerate Process Kit can bolster your Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) head over to the link in this sentence. 45 workflows for less than the price of one day of a SAM consultant’s time! ITAM best-practice as offered in the kit has just saved you at least £45K.
If videos are your thing, then you can always head over to our videos page which offers a run-through of this and many other SAM processes.
