Staffing an ITAM program continued to be a source for questions at Gartner's recent ITAM conference. We respond to questions about organizational issues and job functions.

  • Where should the ITAM function be located within a company? Is it a finance and procurement function or is it an IT operations function?
  • What does a typical organization structure look like for an ITAM department?
  • What job roles and descriptions exist today?
  • Does the configuration management database control how the ITAM function is set up?
