Asset Management
IT is becoming increasingly complex. With a rising number of different devices falling under the wing of IT, it is a priority to maintain control over the infrastructure. IT Asset Management (ITAM) is a mature IT discipline for managing IT assets to meet the current and future demands of the business. Implementing a solid ITAM strategy brings benefits across IT and the organization in the form of reduced cost, improved business/ IT alignment and quality of service. Effective ITAM drives a shift from basic asset tracking to delivering business benefits through management of assets across the whole organization and throughout the full asset lifecycle. With improved ITAM processes, your organization can ensure control, compliance, efficiency and accountability.
