Solving IT Asset Complexity

ITAM - Hardware & Software Asset Management

Keeping track of hardware and software assets has been a 30-year old challenge for most enterprises. Commissioning, deploying and retiring hardware may sound like an easy task but is far from. Tracking of current costs, depreciation and contractual agreements with various vendors and partners is a complex matter. Add software asset management on top off it with allocation, deallocation and maintenance of licenses and you have an even more complex picture.

Einar & Partners have helped some of the largest organizations in the world with locking down their ITAM (IT Asset Management) processes and governance. Standardizing lifecycles, integrating finance and procurement, and applying rigid frameworks and policies on global as well as local levels. Done right, ITAM can be the cost-saving that pays for the entire platform investment in ServiceNow.

Pillars for a successful ITAM Implementation

Creating a solid ITAM practice is a cultural journey more than anything. Compared to other areas of IT Operations, ITAM requires a solid integration towards the financial and cost side of things. Integration with vendors, financial systems and reporting becomes key when embarking on an ITAM journey.


What are the lifecycles for HAM & SAM? When is something ordered, deployed, retired or decommissioned? Defining simple lifecycles which can scale broadly across countries, departments and companies is a key pillar of successful ITAM.
