This issue leads with Technology Lifecycle Management (TLM). As a community member you might be interested to know that you can join our new community, AOM World.   

What is AOM World?  

Similar to SMB Nation, AOM World is an ecosystem of IT Service Providers and MSPs who see value in the “community concept” of sharing information and discussing best practice. In this case, it’s all about  asset management and TLM. A thought leader in our space, Dr. Barb Rembiesa, President of the Internation Association of IT Asset Managers (IAITAM) said it best: ““If you are not managing your IT assets, you are not managing your business properly.” 

BEST PRACTICE: TLM is typically an “enterprise concept” but AOM World is bringing this framework down to the SMB-level. That translates into additional opportunities for you – the SMB Nation member!
