I am excited to introduce an interactive forum for enterprises, service providers and other stakeholders to exchange ideas on how to help companies maximize value through responsible IT Asset Retirement (ITAR) practies. I interact with hundreds of companies each year and learn best practices from them to maximize their returns from a better management of IT assets. I'd like to share some of these lessons with you.
I also want to learn more from you through this discussion to help me understand this industry better. This is a very immature industry and many companies are addressing planned and responsible ITAR for the first time. It may be due to increased security requirements or the need to demonstrate a positive ROI from this business unit, but there is often a particular motivating factor causing companies to rethink how they dispose of their surplus IT assets. Since it may be the first time a company has looked outside for resources, I'm sure there are many questions, and this would be a great place to ask those questions.
Finally, I would like to use this opportunity to share research performed I've conducted and other information I've come across to help companies excel in ITAR. Enjoy, and let me know what you think.
