ITOM Inform Stay Informed—Summer Reading List for Tech Leaders and Practitioners

This month we bring you a curated list of interesting tech articles, and one podcast. Rather than sharing our own perspectives (the one exception is our own CTO, who happens to chair The Open Group), we thought you might enjoy hearing what industry thought leaders think about the trends affecting ITOps most right now. You’ll learn why companies are increasing their ITSM investments. How FinOps brings accountability to rising cloud spend. What organizations should be doing today to turn observability into a competitive differentiator. And more. See you in September!

Happy innovating,

Travis Greene
Director of ITOM Product Marketing
