The proliferation of competing distributed information technologies, corporate reengineering initiatives, and the growth of mobility and virtual users, has led to a need for better management of IT assets. Industry sources estimate that mismanagement of these assets may be as high as $20 billion annual in lost time and unnecessary costs. As such, it is becoming increasingly imperative to reestablish cost-effective controls for equipment, software, and end-user productivity.
With the implementation of a strategic and efficient Asset Management methodology, you will be better positioned to manage your computing assets — from procurement through disposal — and greatly reduce your Total Cost of Ownership. However, a Gartner study suggests that most organizations can only locate 60% of their mobile assets using traditional IT asset management (ITAM) tools.
By taking a managed lifecycle approach, ICP’s goal is to help you focus on the complete costs associated with IT and personal computing. Our Asset Management methodology takes an integrated approach to include all phases of the managed life cycle, from technology procurement, through retirement and disposal strategies, and is similar to those recognized by industry analysts such as Gartner.
