,

The world of ITAM is in constant change. We see devices in all shapes and formats coming to our businesses, both within IT but also outside of the classic scope for IT. Software licensing models are evolving at high pace also and licensing control is moving backwards in the value chain as software development is becoming more and more of a jigsaw puzzle.
Furthermore, the delivery of these components are to a wider degree happening via service engagements of various sorts;engaging a wider group of people in organizations to understand the risks and implications of such engagements.
Such complexity – technically and organizationally – represents a huge challenge for organizations in order be in control, reduce risk and optimize operational performance.

International Standards are needed
The demand for organizations to get control of their IT Assets is strong and the need for international standards is bigger than ever. The ISO family of standards for ITAM is the ISO19770 family of standards. There is a description of the different “family-members” and the work being carried out by the working groups on this site that also links back to the iso.org site: https://www.itamstandards.org/ . As you can see a number of standards have already been published over the years and are updated frequently. Other standards have not been published yet which is the case for the 19770-10; Guidance for implementing ITAM.

Your help is requested!
The ISO working group responsible for IT Asset Management standards (ISO/IEC JTC1 SC7 WG21) is developing the 19770-10 Guidance for Implementing ITAM standard. It has the potential to be one of the most important products in the family.  The working group wish to establish a consensus view about who is the target audience, and what should be covered, because there are so many options, and not all can be covered at this time.
The group is therefore asking for your views in a survey, which can be taken on-line. Please complete the survey by 15 October 2020, but it is best if you do it NOW.  The survey should take between 10 and 15 minutes.
