The partners mentioned above have committed to act as the launching partner (along with some other educational partners).

Why is ITAM certification is such a hot topic now!
- Recent developments due to the pandemic (COVID-19) have made IT Asset Management even more relevant these days. Nowadays, large corporations need to be even more vigilant in keeping track of all their organization licenses. As a result, the demand for IT/Software Asset Management knowledge has soared in the past year.
- The authors who have made the IT Asset Management in ITIL® 4 are the same authors/owners of ITAMOrg. Quickly adapting to sudden changes in the market or surges in demand has allowed us to supply the market with what they need – when they need it – and it’s had a direct impact on the level of demand.
- Working in the cloud has increased the strain on IT Asset Management for Service Management and Security sectors. Knowledge combined in both ITIL 4 Foundation and ITAM Foundation is proving to be invaluable for today’s service managers.
- ServiceNow and other tooling vendors are currently investing heavily in ITAM and SAM.
- Security audits almost always stress the importance of keeping your license up-to-date to prevent significant issues down the road. As the need for this has increased, the demand for better IT Asset Managers has risen exponentially.
- Everyone who has passed an ITIL® 4 certification will receive My ITIL van Axelos, which also contains several IT Asset Management templates. An excellent reason for former certified professionals in ITIL® 4 to convert to ITAM.
- Certified professionals will receive a one-year Membership to ITAMOrg value at 300 euros for free.
- The primary target audiences are Service Managers, IT Asset Managers, CISO Security Administrators, and Purchasers/Contract Managers.
By adding a highly valued new skill, you will be able to differentiate yourself quicker in an ever-changing and growing market!
