IT asset management creates a detailed, up-to-date inventory of an organization’s IT assets, which include any company-owned information, systems or hardware, and leverages this inventory to drive all IT-related decisions. Smart, proactive planning through ITAM leads to a reduction in waste and unnecessary risk.
Assessing All Assets
Many organizations today still implement asset management practices only when a specific situation demands its aid, but this means they revert back to inefficient, unproductive and unsafe practices until the next challenge comes their way. The best practices below can help generate more business value through asset management.
IT asset management, or ITAM, is a set of business practices for optimizing spend and supporting strategic decision- making by controlling asset inventory.
IT Asset Management Best Practices
Create a full IT inventory to gain visibility into all assets that exist in the organization.
Determine what constitutes a critical asset, which may require greater oversight or management than others.
Manage software licenses to remain compliant, prepare for software audits and avoid unnecessary costs.
Keep track of vendors, network configuration data, locations, user info, purchase and disposal info and financial information.
Set KPIs that matter, such as asset depreciation rate, average maintenance cost and average lease violation fines paid.
Establish regular reporting processes and remain consistent with execution.
Outsource patching, application deployment, reporting and other key functions to free up IT time, ensure complete compliance and stay cost-effective.
Continually update your asset database and focus on change management.
