  • Our approach to extract the best value from Asset & Configuration Management solutions is based on the following building blocks:

 

 

Inventory - The Collection and management of an asset through its lifecycle, from acquisition through disposal. The objective is knowing what you have, where it’s located, who is using it, and how it’s being used. Also, the business value, enabling cost control as well as support to the outsourcing invoice/billing control, where deals are based on inventory or volumetric data.

Contracts & Finance - Tying the asset inventory to financial and contractual information (Lease, Maintenance, Warranty and Support, Software). This way it is possible to know the contractual agreements specific to the asset, tie assets to cost and offer business value by enabling TCO view of estate, cost reductions, service support efficiencies, strategic planning and software compliance.

Software Compliance - The comparison between entitlements, deployed software and the deployed IT environment on which it is used, measuring and monitoring the balance and optimizing usage. This will allow to know and manage the legal compliance position, avoid risk avoidance, controlling costs and reduction, enabling also software investment optimization.
