I look forward to joining the leadership team that will push this progress in quality and consistency to our industry.”

“The TEM industry is drastically changing the way Enterprises manage their technology estate” said Jane Sydlowski, President of AMI Strategies. “With the rapid growth of IoT initiatives, Unified Communications and more, managing inventory, licenses, and mobile “things” while making certain the associated invoices are correct, is a tremendous and complicated endeavor. TEM companies have used their expertise and invested millions of dollars to simplify the madness. I am honored to serve on the board of TEMIA to help this unique industry with standards, ethics and empowerment.”

If you are in the space but not participating in TEMIA, you are certainly missing out.”

  • Opportunities to meet new strategic partners.
  • TEMIA’s purpose; core values; brand promises; key initiatives.
