Advantages and benefits of IT Asset Management

Keeping the technological infrastructure under control, these days, is one of the biggest challenges for companies around the world.

It doesn't mean simply managing efficiently the hardware and software, but also making them serve the company; hence the value of having solutions created specifically to meet these requirements.

The software, hardware and any physical part owned by the company are considered as IT assets.

The assets of a company's hardware generally include computers, servers, printers, copiers, landlines and mobile phones. According to each company can also be, cars, trucks and anything inherent in the delivery of products or services.

On the other hand, Software assets include programs, user accounts, licenses, etc.

Managing the use, cycle and depreciation of hardware and software in companies, was previously done in a register manner, better known as inventory and was manually, which took a long time and there could be many errors.

Actualy, thanks to "the cloud" technology, the modern IT Asset Management (ITAM) can keep track of them more easily.
The systems that are based on "the Cloud" direct ITAM processes and depend on interactive automation to manage them more efficiently.

What do these ITAM systems really track? In a few words, everything. The most important parts of the hardware and software life cycle includes:

  • Acquisition, approval process and obtaining.
  • Maintenance and life cycle management, including financial details about the asset, licenses, updates and versions, measurable objectives, Return on Investment, downtime, etc.
  • Redistribution and alienation.

The advantages of Software Asset Management go beyond the costs reduction.


ADVANTAGES

  1. Avoid waste when buying assets to which the organization already has access.
  2. Predict costs through a financial accounting of IT spending in an organization.
  3. Find savings opportunities by identifying assets used in the organization and combining licenses with similar means.
  4. Ensure a broad use of resources by distributing and dispossessing IT assets that are not being used.
  5. Identify all the critical dependencies during the planning of an IT project.
  6. Resolve the knowledge gap due to personnel changes within the company.
  7. Acquire knowledge of a company from experiences with suppliers, brands, types of assets, configurations, etc.
  8. Improve IT security and compliance, avoiding an incomplete inventory of assets.
  9. Reduce IT staff time by improving visibility and understanding old assets when dealing with problematic tickets.
  10. Reduce the average repair time and improve other ITAM performance metrics by quickly identifying the roots of the problems.

The management of ITAM is totally strategic for the growth of companies. For a software, the planning must also exist, since with the control of the planning, the purchase, the backups and the training are facilitated.

ITAM will always have in its hands the software that the company has and the quantity of products used, who uses it, how and when it is used.

By adopting software asset management, the company has the possibility to improve several series of processes.

BENEFITS

Among the main benefits obtained with the ITAM are the following:

1. Better inventory tracking.

With the amount of work that must be done, there is little time left to maintain an inventory of everything that is within your infrastructure. ITAM services can identify, track and accurately classify the assets between each of the suppliers. This will provide a better picture of the assets available and allow leaders to make decisions based on the current environment.

This information will define which tools are being used for updates, patches and access control, as well as what services will complement the existing processes.
The monitoring of all technological solutions is complex, but with the management of IT assets, organizations will be able to accurately and easily track their resources.

2. Improved provisioning

If you do not have a clear idea of ​​the assets you currently have, it will be difficult to provide the necessary functionality and ensure that all services provide commercial value.

ITAM gives a clear view of applications and active endpoints, and supports licensing, security and compliance needs.
By using IT asset management, organizations can track licenses and combine available hardware to improve cost savings.
With this information, company leaders can support users with more valuable tools and interrupt obsolete services.

3. Supported hardware configuration monitoring

With so many devices within an organization, it is difficult to track their needs and satisfy them in the same way. Over time, hardware and user requirements change, which must be reflected in the way companies configure and deliver resources.

With so many devices within an organization, it is difficult to track their needs and satisfy them in the same way. Over time, hardware and user requirements change, which must be reflected in the way companies configure and deliver resources.

The configuration of information is crucial to implement software that integrates seamlessly. Organizations can also use this data to quickly solve any problems that arise.

Adjust your configuration backups on a regular basis to reflect current needs and ensure that you have the most up-to-date version at your fingertips.

IT is complex, especially when counting mobile devices and other emerging software and hardware trends.

These benefits can help your company save on costs and support its employees with the best solutions.

The Asset Management systems offer a better way to manage everything. We must take advantage of Cloud-based systems, encourage measurable and intelligent change and minimize security risks.
