We manage IT assets
IT assets are the technological resources that every company has to streamline its management.
Asset management in IT will focus on both the hardware and the available software, ensuring that the organization will have the ability to manage these assets throughout their life cycle.
For this reason, it will be important to have a complete list of assets, or inventory of items such as:
Software: operating systems, development tools, services such as office tools, web browsers, antivirus systems, database systems, end user application software, server application software, etc.
Hardware: computers, monitors, keyboards, mobile phones, removable media, servers, wiring elements, switches, firewalls, routers, modems, PBX, UPS power supplies, printers, scanners, etc.
Maintaining control and an updated list of that information will be used in the future to make decisions about purchases and the use that will be given to those assets. It will help companies to use their assets effectively, and avoid making unnecessary purchases by reusing existing resources.
