New software provides simplified view of IT assets
For large companies keeping on top of IT assets and software licenses can be a complex and time consuming process.
IT management company LANDESK is releasing a new version of its IT Asset Management (ITAM) Suite which provides a simplified view of assets in one central place via a LANDESK Workspace, putting decision-making data at the fingertips of managers.
Features of the software include improved asset visibility. IT managers get a comprehensive look at managed assets, making it easy to identify owned assets, optimize software, reclaim unused licenses and regain negotiating power with vendors.
ITAM delivers detailed, reliable licensing information, helping monitor the current state of compliance and respond faster to software audits. For hardware it can automate tracking of warranty data and lease information.
LANDESK Workspaces is compatible with Mac, Windows, iOS and Android operating systems, and it provides the same experience regardless of device, so it can be used centrally or during on site audits.
"Many asset management tools, whether they are discovery, license optimization or asset repositories, tout the total number of reports available in the product," says Patricia Adams, ITAM evangelist at LANDESK. "While this is useful information, knowing how to act on the data is more meaningful. Having the data displayed in a format that allows for rapid business decision-making enables the asset manager to be more efficient. LANDESK Workspaces provides a customizable dashboard and the visibility needed to understand the health of the IT assets and make actionable decisions".
More information on the IT Asset Management Suite is available on the LANDESK website.
