7 Capabilities Your IT Asset Management Software Should Provide

Are you one of those IT administrators that is trying to manage a constantly growing inventory of all types of devices, software and network infrastructures via an IT staff that isn’t growing, possibly even shrinking? Well, it’s virtually impossible to administer this complex, always evolving environment without IT asset management software and reporting automation. Here are the capabilities your IT asset management software should provide:

  • A single, web-based interface to deploy all hardware and software inventory and IT asset management  processes
  • Asset data audit, tracking
  • Tracking of all hardware and software assets within a single database
  • Asset tracking throughout the lifecycle including move, add, change and delete (MACD) activities
  • Online, always accessible vendor, service and maintenance contracts ensuring accurate tracking of financial and service impacts of asset changes
  • Details on discovered software applications including software category and threat level

This IT asset management software solution would deliver a comprehensive up-to-date network inventory whenever you desired. You could view and manage the network efficiently from anywhere at any time. You could gain access to any computer or server, and troubleshoot any issue from your office. You’d know, at any time, exactly what software was running on the system, when the system was installed, when the license expires, its OS version, the latest security update installed, how much memory or capacity it had and so forth… down to the smallest detail.

    Thanks for sharing such a useful information here. The Software asset management system also handles complexities of multiple license types, multiple vendors, multiple platforms and entire license entitlement including on premise PC software licenses, mobile apps and cloud service subscriptions.
