HP Asset Manager: What Vehicle is Driving Your IT?

HPITSM ‎12-07-2012 11:07 AM - edited ‎09-25-2015 09:55 PM

So much to do, so little budget with which to do it—this quandary is an all too familiar one for IT departments who are attempting to emphasize value and innovation while simultaneously justifying and reducing the cost of services. Combined with a lack of transparency and control over the physical, virtual, contractual and fiscal elements of complex business assets, meeting the challenge of successfully aligning IT services with business objectives becomes a difficult—if not virtually impossible—task. In order to solve this issue, IT departments must adopt more strategic financial management practices that will ultimately result in more foreseeable and higher valued services.


The question that remains is which ITAM product is best suited for the task?


Roll in HP Asset Manager, the Mercedes of ITAM products. A powerful and flexible solution, HP Asset Manager creates a single repository that compiles and maintains information while supporting all processes around the life cycle of IT assets. Using HP Asset Manager, organizations around the globe can be assured of the following:

  • Asset Tracking; Procurement, Contract, Financial and Software Asset Management modules
  • Mitigation of compliance risks by ensuring that assets are held to contractual standards, i.e. software licensing and maintenance requirements
  • Enhanced service and reduced asset costs  through streamlining the completion of service requests and asset tracking
  • Alignment of IT with business objectives through tactical financial management and measuring the total cost of ownership in providing business services to the organization



But don’t take our word for it. Ask Black & Decker, Constellation Energy or a few Fortune 500 companies—who are just a handful of noteworthy clients on our long list of notable HP Asset Manager customers.


Bottom line: the better your ITAM, the better prepared your IT department will be to deliver quality services and resources to all business components.


Are you ready to drive your IT to the next level?
