Asset Management / Lifecycle Management
Do you know how to manage your IT infrastructure in the most cost effective way? The focus of managing enterprise assets is not the assets themselves. Rather, it’s the value they deliver to the enterprise.
IT asset management is an important part of an organization's strategy. It involves gathering detailed hardware and software inventory information which is then used to make decisions about hardware and software purchases and redistribution. IT inventory management helps organizations manage their systems more effectively and saves time and money by avoiding unnecessary asset purchases and promoting the harvesting of existing resources. Organizations that develop and maintain an effective IT asset management program further minimize the incremental risks and related costs of advancing IT portfolio infrastructure projects based on old, incomplete and/or less accurate information.
