IT resource management software refers to ITAM, or IT asset management, or IT asset management. This tool therefore covers the both the management of IT equipment andt software. Operating assets requires encompassing different aspects. ITAM therefore intervenes for the discovery of IT resources, but also for their entire life cycle, and this across the entire organization. Stock management, usage measurement, maintenance, user authorization, license compliance, acquisitions ... this software integrates multiple functions. While free applications exist, their use nevertheless assumes the existence of sufficient IT assets to generate productivity gains and rationalization for the company and its IT team. But the application can also be administered by an external partner on behalf of the company, as part of a fleet management service. ITAM, ITSM, ITOM for a complete kit For a complete management of IT in the organization, ITAM ist very often supplemented by ITSM, for the management of IT services, and by ITOM, for the IT operations component. The three together thus allow a global approach to IT management. But whether alone, or combined with ITSM and ITOM, ITAM aims to provide visibility on the computer park to know the state of it and inform acquisition projects , for example new laptops. Different equipment and software can be numerous within the company. And these assets generate a cost, which can be optimized in order to generate savings, in particular. As such, maintenance represents a significant center of expenditure. The IT resource management software will thus be used to identify maintenance needs and carry out these operations. Knowing and managing IT assets: the advantages of ITAM ITAM centralizes knowledge of the entire fleet of materiel and software, promoting productivity gains and cost reduction. In terms of advantages, a tool of this type therefore constitutes a lever: Optimizing the value of IT resources. All the assets are listed , but also their use. This knowledge of the park is the opportunity to identify, for example, unused or little used licenses. This information is a decision aid. Improving the productivity of IT teams , and therefore the quality of service provided to end users. Automation enabled by ITAM software frees up time for higher value-added tasks. Protection and compliance. Analysis and discovery features enable identify terminals that do not comply with the security policy or obsolete software versions liable to generate vulnerabilities. Key functionalities to manageonactif IT Computer resource management software covers various processes such as identification, maintenance, decommissioning of software and peripherals, or acquisition and commissioning. The essential functions therefore relate to: Automatic inventory management and asset tracking. The terminals and applications on the network are discovered automatically. The most advanced ITAM software even embeds monitoring of resources and real-time diagnostics. License management. Knowing the number of licenses deployed makes it possible, for example, to detect a additional cost related to the suion of unnecessary licenses. This function should be compared with the measurement of software use. Compliance with detection of non-compliant software and the application of bans for certain solutions. Monitoring of compliance also includesmanagement of licenses, including their expiration date. With the explosion of mobile devices and cloud uses, it can be important for the company to be able to also manage mobile fleets and IT assets hosted in one or more clouds. Another trend, still emerging, is the automation of IT administration tasks using artificial intelligence. We then speak of AIOps or AI in the service of IT operations.
