IT Asset Management

What exactly is IT asset management?

IT asset management (ITAM) is another term for IT inventory management. It denotes the management and detailed documentation of a company’s hardware and software inventory and their relationships and interdependencies. In addition to the inventory and management of IT assets, ITAM also provides valuable contributions to purchase and investment decisions, the definition and ongoing development of the basic IT strategy, the ongoing optimization of the use of IT assets and has a significant impact on almost all business areas. Ideally, the entire lifecycle of an asset can be mapped with a seamless IT asset management solution so that you can make tactical and strategic outlook decisions.

Why is IT asset management so important?

Overview and control

To manage and protect your IT infrastructure, you must maintain a complete and always up-to-date overview that is then managed by a well-designed and simple ITAM solution. It helps you to keep control of your IT infrastructure, be able to provide information at any time and to act instead of just reacting. So you eliminate potential security leaks before they appear.

Reducing costs

Reliable IT asset management minimizes the risk of unnecessary hardware and software costs as well as financial penalties imposed for violating legal, contractual, or official regulations. You can also intelligently manage software licenses to ensure IT compliance and at the same time optimize costs over the long term.


Solid ITAM ensures scalability and agility. In particular, IT assets can be proactively purchased with the help of the collected data, associated historical reports and trend analyses. Decisions and operational necessities can be easily derived from the data.
