Extensis Kicks Off Association’s IT Asset Management Awareness Month with Webinar on Font Compliance; VP of Development & Strategy Selected to Speak at ACE Conference
Portland, Ore.―December 14, 2016―Extensis® announced today it has joined the International Association of Information Technology Asset Managers (IAITAM) to expand the organization’s educational offerings to include font management and digital asset management.
IAITAM is the professional association for individuals and organizations involved in any aspect of IT Asset Management, Software Asset Management, Hardware Asset Management, and the lifecycle processes supporting IT Asset Management in organizations of every size and industry across the globe.
Dr. Barbara Rembiesa, D.Litt, CEO & President at IAITAM commented: “IAITAM is proud to announce Extensis as a new provider member. Since 2002, IAITAM has been bringing together the best practitioners and vendors in the ITAM industry for the purpose of advancing the profession. IAITAM believes IT asset management will evolve to include the focus on information as the real asset with the IT asset being the critical foundation for the organization’s knowledge platforms. An organization’s competitive advantage lies with its IT and data assets.”
Toby Martin, Vice President of Development & Strategy at Extensis noted: “Extensis has teamed up with IAITAM to extend the purview of “IT and Data Assets” to include digitized assets – including fonts, images, electronic files, videos, logos.”
Martin continued: “With the growth of both font collections and digital files, the need for education on how to reduce risk, ensure compliance and overall efficient management and preservation of the files is of increasing importance. Extensis will partner with IAITAM to deliver training and educational content to help IT Managers develop effective solutions.”
To kick things off, Extensis is delivering a Webinar for IT Asset Awareness Month: “Fonts? You mean I have to worry about compliance there too?” To learn more about IAIATAM and Extensis’ Webinar, click here.
