We’ve created a blog series to celebrate IT Asset Managers and all they do to keep organizations running smoothly. Read on to learn how their budgeting skills can make a big impact.
With the growth of cloud-based IT systems, the need for expensive, on premise assets has diminished in recent years. Still, organizations are constantly seeking ways to reduce the costs of managing their assets, and successful IT Asset Managers manipulate every possible tactic to save budget.
Vimal Mani, an IT Governance subject matter expert, notes that streamlining IT asset management can help control IT spending by using asset data to identify key targets for downsizing. Mani also notes that sophisticated asset management can help unearth any costs that lurk beneath the surface.
“Organizations can achieve significant savings on the ‘hidden’ costs of PC hardware and software…like the costs of supporting and managing them, which generally comprise the huge share of the total cost of ownership (TCO),” said Mani.
Masters of Cost Management explore new technologies, but also seek ways to derive the maximum value from their current assets, while avoiding painful costs from outdated or non-compliant systems.
