Rethinking Information Technology Asset Management


Information technology asset management (ITAM) and software asset management (SAM) is hard. Annual IT budget forecasts rarely hold up for the entire year. There are plenty of excuses given:
‧ Untrustworthy reporting from the CMDB or MDR
‧ Unplanned version upgrades or platform refreshes
‧ Unapproved software, license, or cloud computing subscriptions coming due
‧ Unanticipated software license audit penalties
‧ And on, and on, and on
Rethinking Information Technology Asset Management presents a new answer to the problem. Most business leaders and IT managers assume nothing can be done. That these problems are part-and-parcel of modern IT. This book presents a new method – Pragmatic ITAM – that offers permanent solutions to the ignored, underpinning issues driving hardware and software cost overruns.
This book is intended for business leaders and IT executives who are tired of missed budget forecasts, unexpected software audit penalties, untrustworthy CMDB or Asset MDR reports, and idea that this is “just the way it is.”
