The full course for learning everything about IT Asset Management. Includes free ITAM eBook
IT asset management (ITAM) is a set of business practices that combines financial, inventory and contractual functions to optimize spending and support lifecycle management and strategic decision-making within the IT environment. ITAM is often a subset of the IT service management (ITSM) process
An IT asset is classified as any company-owned information, system or hardware used in business activities. The IT asset management process typically involves gathering a detailed inventory of an organization's hardware, software and network assets and then making informed business decisions about IT-related purchases and redistribution.
ITAM applications are available to organizations to assist in the ITAM process. These applications can detect the hardware, software and network assets across an organization and then capture, record and make the data available. Some of these applications integrate ITAM with the service desk, keeping user and access information together with incidents and requests.
