This white paper examines how IBM IT Asset Management enables organizations to take control of IT assets, from planning through disposal, to improve service quality and better manage asset costs. It discusses in detail how IBM solutions deliver improved visibility, control and automation throughout the IT asset management life cycle.

For instance, IBM can help organi-zations understand and make use of information on:

  • Which assets are deployed, and where.
  • The status of an asset's contract, lease or warranty status.
  • Where the asset is in its productive use life cycle.
  • How the asset is performing.
  • Whether the asset has received a required patch.
  • Whether the asset is properly licensed.
  • How the asset is configured in relation to other assets in ways that may affect business services.
  • What the asset costs
