Plugging the skills gap in ITAM
ITAM excellence requires a significant level of knowledge of major software publishers, licensing and contracts, management of software asset management tools, and the ability to process and manage the data these provide. Unfortunately, there’s a growing skills gap in ITAM for employees with these skills, creating a ITAM talent crisis.
As the IT industry continues to evolve and new technologies emerge, the demand for skilled ITAM professionals has increased. However, the current talent pool does not meet the growing demand with the ITAM skills shortage becoming a major concern for organizations of all sizes, as they struggle to find qualified candidates to fill critical roles.
Join our team in the UK for a roundtable discussion on “Plugging the Skills Gap in IT Asset Management (ITAM)" where we will delve into the challenges and opportunities associated with finding and retaining skilled ITAM professionals.
Discussion to be led by strategic ITAM leader George Arezina, we will explore some of the key issues related to the skills gap in ITAM, including:
- What are the current trends and challenges in the ITAM job market?
- How can organizations attract and retain skilled ITAM professionals?
- What are the key skills and competencies required for success in ITAM, and how can organizations develop these skills in their existing workforce?
- How can ITAM professionals stay up-to-date with the latest trends and technologies in the field?
- What are the potential consequences of not addressing the skills gap in ITAM, and how can organizations mitigate these risks?
