IT Asset Management – Reducing Costs and Risks Sustainably

We help customers to increase the transparency of IT assets in use, identify potential savings for hardware and software, and avoid compliance risks at the same time.Get in touch with us

Keep track of your IT assets

The IT landscape is constantly changing. On the one hand, there is a regular need for new IT solutions, and on the other hand, IT that has already been acquired must be checked for its economic use and, if not needed, it must be decommissioned. A functioning IT asset management helps to keep track of all IT assets and to save costs directly by minimizing risks.

Risk minimization

A fully comprehensive and well-implemented IT asset management program can help minimize various risks. Licensing risks can be detected and eliminated e.g., by removing improperly licensed software. Cybersecurity risks can also be mitigated e.g., by controlling the use of approved hardware and software configurations.

Cost savings

IT asset management can help avoid unnecessary IT costs. Often, people pay for hardware and software that is either not needed at all or not needed to the extent that licenses or devices / instances are currently kept. On the other hand, money is lacking elsewhere to procure the hardware and software that is really needed.

What is IT Asset Management?

IT Asset Management deals with the proactive management of IT assets. According to ISO/IEC 19770-1, IT assets include not only classic software products (e.g. a software license for Office), but also hardware (e.g. laptops for employees) as well as IT contracts. IT asset management is primarily concerned with the lifecycle - planning, procurement, deployment (install, move, add, change), monitoring and decommissioning - of IT assets to ensure, for example, that only correctly licensed software is used or that old equipment is regularly retired.

Procure only the hardware and software you really need

IT Asset Management ensures that demands are questioned and evaluated, that only the hardware and software needed is procured. Later, based on the use of the hardware and software, the quality of demand planning is controlled and optimized if necessary.
