Overview
IBM Tivoli Asset Management for IT is designed to help track and manage your hardware and software IT assets, with particular emphasis on inventory, asset life-cycle management, and license management. Asset Management for IT includes inventory, asset tracking, asset reconciliation, financial management, contract management, procurement management, and, optionally, Service Level Agreement (SLA) management. This asset life-cycle functionality permits the tracking and management of IT assets through initial request, approval, procurement, contract, receipt, inventory, deployment, asset installs-moves-adds-changes (IMACs), and retirement.

Are you paying for unused software licenses? Are you prepared for your next vendor software audit? Take control with SymantecTM Asset Management Suite 8.0. In combination with Symantec Client Management Suite, you’ll get an accurate picture of your organization’s assets, ensure compliance during software audits, avoid vendor penalties and fines and uncover savings by eliminating the purchase of unnecessary licenses. Without an in-depth understanding of your organization’s software licenses, vendor contracts, and assets, it’s difficult to make smart business decisions. Asset Management Suite helps you take control with a complete and accurate picture of the relationships between all of them.

Asset Management Suite discovers, inventories, and tracks all the hardware and software assets in your IT infrastructure through a CMDB. The CMDB manages assets’ hierarchical relationships to other configuration items, users, locations, departments, cost centers, and associated contracts. This information gives you credible information on the location and license status of every important OS, virtualization platform, or application instance. With this detailed, up-to-date information, your team can quickly identify problems, apply solutions, and document compliance.
