What Is IT Asset Management?

Depending on the business, there’s a myriad of IT assets to keep track of and doing it manually can be taxing. An IT asset management system allows IT pros to monitor all the hardware and software introduced into the business and when those assets exit. When a service desk has details on each IT asset, where it resides, and its owner, IT pros can provide continuity of service and better manage service costs. IT assets can be physical, digital, software, and in the cloud.

How to Become a Successful Software Asset Manager

As part of a challenge, I read Ulysses by James Joyce. 😬 Never again. At almost 1,000 pages (although about 250 of those pages were just explanatory notes), it was tough going. Especially when some bits of it were written in Latin, Irish, and Hungarian. I may have skimmed parts. At 42 pages, the Microsoft SQL Server 2019 Licensing Guide is no Ulysses, and it does have the benefit of being written in a single language. But it’s still not an easy read for us mere mortals.

This year Ivanti was placed in the Leader quadrant in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for ITSM Tools report.
