SAMS Nordic 2019: Why Are Organizations Losing Trust in Incumbent ITAM and SAM Tools and What Are the Alternatives?
As one of the main sponsors, Certero will be hosting a World Café session at SAMS Nordic 2019 that explores the erosion of trust in the ITAM and SAM market, what the causes are and what alternatives are available.
This year’s SAMS Nordic event is taking place in Copenhagen between the 11th and 12th of March. The World Café sessions are segmented into different conversation rounds, where each new group continues the discussion from the last. After the final group has concluded, the hosts summarize their sessions in a short presentation back to delegates at the event.
Join Certero on the 12th of March as Ric Sterling hosts our World Café session between 11:30am and 3:15pm. You can read the synopsis below:
Why Are Organizations Losing Trust in Incumbent ITAM and SAM Tools and What Are the Alternatives?
After more than a decade of over-promising and under-delivering, the common perception is ITAM and SAM vendors have lost credibility to the point where customers no longer trust them. Typically, vendors have core capabilities where they deliver value, but outside of this they struggle. ITAM vendors rarely excel at SAM and vice versa. Most SAM vendors specialize in Windows but struggle in datacenter, or only cover a narrow range of devices. Despite their limitations, they continue to over-promise.
- How long does it typically take to implement ITAM and SAM solutions?
- What are the main limitations of incumbent ITAM and SAM tools?
- What features, functions and capabilities do you want in your ITAM and SAM solutions?
- How do next generation solutions measure up against your expectations?
- If a next generation solution with advanced capabilities was available now, would you adopt it?
