A Centralized ITAM : All Your Asset Info in 1 Place
What is IT Asset Management?
According to Gartner, “IT Asset Management (ITAM) provides an accurate account of technology asset lifecycle costs and risks to maximize the business value of technology strategy, architecture, funding, contractual and sourcing decisions.” ITAM generally uses automation, to manage the discovery of assets, so inventory can be compared to license entitlements.
The Need for a Single Source of Truth
In order to maximize the value of the systems your firm relies on for all its ITAM activities, it’s ever more crucial to digitalize them. This means to connecting them, centralizing them, enabling them to interact and collaborate across silos, locations and departments to drive accurate business insights. However, as many as 3 in 10 organizations admit they don’t know which assets they own, where they are located and who is using them. The remaining 70% think they know.

5 Reasons Why Centralized IT Asset Management is More Crucial Than Ever
Are you really in control of your IT landscape?
IT Asset Discovery & Inventory
IT Asset Discovery and inventory is fundamental to virtually all other forms of hardware and software asset management. Without an understanding of what equipment is on the network, and how it is configured, very little IT Asset Management value will ever be realized. Successful IT Asset Management starts with a complete and accurate overview of all the hardware, software, and users in your environment.
A Centralized ITAM Repository
IT Asset Management is no longer possible by just using Inventory Excel templates and spreadsheets, no matter how good you are at them. Relying on manual updates only results in scores of obsolete data. Fed by a solid IT Discovery solution, a centralized IT Asset Management repository is needed to manage, track and report on IT assets, including, physical and contractual data throughout the entire life cycle of each asset.
