IT Asset Management Software Overview

What is IT Asset Management Software?

IT Asset Management software is designed to inventory all the hardware and software within an organization to aid decision-making regarding hardware and software purchases and redistribution.

IT Asset Management Features & Capabilities

Typical capabilities of IT Asset management software are:

  • Discovery and management of hardware and software inventory

  • Lifecycle monitoring from acquisition to retirement

  • Asset detail drill-down

  • Enduring license agreement compliance

  • Configuration management database for recording all asset data

  • Purchase order and contract management

Typically, inventory, financial and contractual data is discovered and maintained in a central repository. This helps with monitoring assets throughout their entire lifecycle. Requests to purchase assets are handled through approval workflows. The software handles acquisition details such as entitlement, chargebacks, and provisioning. Post-deployment, all maintenance activity is recorded and audits are performed until assets are retired from service.

Pricing Information

Pricing for ITAM cloud services varies is usually priced per agent per month, and there is often an additional charge per device. Enterprise-level solutions have a cost in the region of $100 per user, but SMB options can be significantly cheaper.
