Taming complexity in the cloud, with Kylie Fowler of ITAM Intelligence
Show Notes

In this month's episode we talk to Kylie Fowler,  a leading consultant in the realm of IT and Software Asset Management, enabling companies to optimise their IT estate through best practice and maximise their investments in tech. Connect with Kylie on LinkedIn.

Joining Alasdair is Cloudsoft's Vicky Glynn, who spoke alongside Kylie at the DIGIT Cloud First conference in June 2021. We wanted to continue the conversation around Cloud's promise of simplicity and the complex, hybrid technology world most organisations actually inhabit.

Kylie, Vicky and Alasdair delve into this complex reality, and talk about how organisations can use new tactics like composability, alongside more traditional asset management strategies, to get their disparate technologies singing in harmony.
