CANTON, Ohio — The isolation and disconnection created by the COVID-19 work-from-home regimen is about to end for IT asset management (ITAM) professionals. On March 1, the International Association of IT Asset Managers launched IAITAM World, a fully immersive online experience that allows ITAM professionals to speak with colleagues, meet in groups, access information from other industry professionals — and they never have to set up a Zoom meeting or dial into a call.
IAITAM World is a 24/7 platform for the ITAM industry to connect, network, solve issues, and innovate for the future. Enriched with years of content from IAITAM and resources available from the industry’s leading vendors, IAITAM World is a one-stop-shop for anyone involved in IT decision making.
“After the Annual Conference and Exhibition, IAITAM received many compliments about how great the event was, but I felt that the connection was missing,” said IAITAM President and CEO Barbara Rembiesa. “IAITAM has never done things the way others have done them, and we always go above and beyond. This project is no different. I want to give IT asset managers the ability to instantly collaborate and work with fellow practitioners from around the globe 24/7, and there has never been an opportunity like this. The Zoom platform is about purposeful meetings but it misses the collaborative and initiative opportunities that often arise from unplanned conversations.
“IAITAM is now in its 19th year of serving ITAM professionals,” she continued. “IAITAM World reflects the fact we now have the same enthusiasm that we did in year one to do the best possible job for ITAM professionals. We created IAITAM World to serve the IT asset management industry as well as anybody making IT purchasing decisions for their organization. And since every business relies on technology, there really is something for everyone in IAITAM World.”
