InvGate Assets Overview

IT asset management is often an underappreciated corporate IT capability, with far more focus placed on IT service management (ITSM) activities and the need to keep the business running rather than ensuring that the right level of IT assets is being employed in doing so. Consequently, companies might be wasting a significant amount of their IT budgets every year due to the lack of insight into IT asset expenditure and use.

Good examples of such wastage include new expenditure on hardware and software when existing assets could be reused, paying third-party support and maintenance for IT assets that aren’t being used (including over-procured software), and continuing to host, maintain, and support assets that should have been decommissioned long ago.

However, savvy IT organizations know how to use IT asset management tools, techniques, and data to maximize the return on investment (ROI) on IT assets, decrease the overall cost of ownership, and reduce risks such as software license compliance.
