High-functioning enterprises increasingly rely on ITAM practitioners to tackle new and evolving challenges. Saving money has increasingly become ITAM teams’ number one initiative, but new responsibilities don’t end there. FinOps teams, central cloud teams, security teams, ESG (environmental, social and governance) teams, ITSM teams and enterprise architecture teams are improving their business outcomes by leveraging data from ITAM teams and tools. Vendor audits are still top of mind for many organizations. However, regularly optimizing spend across cloud, on-premises and SaaS is shaving millions more off annual expenditures.
This year’s survey is weighted more heavily toward larger companies, with 89% of respondents in organizations with more than 2,000 employees and 14% in organizations with more than 50,000 employees.
More than half (60%) of respondents are from North America and one-third come from Europe, including the UK (21%), Germany (12%) and France (1%).
