What exactly does inventory for IT mean?

Taking inventory of your IT landscape is the bases for integrated and effective IT management. Maintaining an overview of all IT assets uncovers possible security risks, such as missing patches or shadow IT, and can minimize risks of errors in the IT infrastructure. Furthermore, unused systems or applications can be identified and uninstalled to save money. The right software gives you the economic advantage because you can inventory and then manage all IT assets in a short amount of time.

The risk of hacker attacks, viruses, or data theft increases with any device that has not been inventoried. Minimize the chance of an attack on your IT infrastructure by covering all IT assets in your company and maintaining this information with a professional management suite.

I am allways up to date about which hardware and software is installed on a PC, when the last inventory was done and wich patch status the system has. The solution is very structured and self-explanatory. I can really see everything I want to see.
