Managing your IT Assets reduces cost, and increases flexibility and security. But how do you get all those assets under control in today’s environment?

Becky Smith will share her journey leading a team to establish an IT Asset Management Practice for a large Aerospace and Defense Company.

Her experience will include:

  • Assess current status
  • Envision desired future state
  • Establish annual plans
  • Establish metrics
  • Process and Tools
  • People
  • Using the ITAM data to manage

Ryan Johnston will share his experience using BMC Discovery to capture air gapped systems for Flexera.

Flexera’s integration with BMC Discovery can give you powerful insight to your entire license position, but only if it can see the big picture of an organization’s entire inventory. Once Flexera is implemented, how do you ensure you are making the most out of the solution? How can “air gapped” systems that are physically separated from other networks be accounted for? Attend this session to get a view on one agency’s approach to maximizing inventory data in order to obtain an accurate license position.”

Join us to hear how Flexera became an integral part of these journeys.
