IT Asset Management

The discipline of IT asset management is essential for organizations to effectively demonstrate the value of information and communication technology investments for the business. Knowing which IT assets you have and how they are used has become a challenge in today's complex and ever evolving IT infrastructure. The typical IT infrastructure has many different assets of various types, and new assets that are being deployed daily to support the evolving business needs. Tracking hardware and software inventory has become a burden for many IT managers. But taking IT inventory is not enough. Once you gain control over your IT inventory, the next step is to correlate them against the related financial assets, such as contracts, software licenses or service agreements, to understand how they relate to the business and take any actions required. IT Asset Management will help you easily track your assets and understand how they impact your business.
