ITAM & ITAD Synergies Whitepaper

  1. 1. IT Asset Management and IT Asset Disposal Synergies in Asset Life Cycle Management - A SaaS Play IT Asset Management (ITAM) software solutions are varied and highly fragmented in the overall market from the smallest Business Owner to the Enterprise Corporation, yet they all have a common intent of maximizing the performance and utilization of IT Assets, while monitoring for potential threats. It is a proactive approach to ensure the company’s capital expenditures are returning the best possible ROI from point of acquisition through the useful deployment life cycle of the asset. ITAM solutions begin with an Asset Profiler that allows the IT Manager to record the “birth” of the asset into the company network of assets. This profiler will then proactively monitor the changes to that asset as it evolves and goes through upgrades and maintenance. This is business intelligence that enables the IT Manager to remain in control of the network and strive for that .9999 uptime. That same proactive approach to maximizing ROI on capital expenditure naturally extends to IT Asset Disposition (ITAD). In fact, in today’s economy, it is necessary to have the business intelligence for planning the decommission of your assets based on current remarket values, technology refresh roadmaps and ability to supplement capital expenditure budgets for acquisition of new assets. The data required to do this already resides in your ITAM database. It simply needs to be looked at from an ITAD perspective, and managed with equally powerful and easy to use tools to support your business models and decision making.
