Infrastructure assets are stationary systems (or networks) that serve defined communities where the system as a whole in intended to be maintained indefinitely to a specified level of service by the continuing replacement and refurbishment of its components.
One of the most important features of infrastructure networks is the degree of inter-dependency, not only within a particular asset network, but also from one network to another. The failure of one component within a network may undermine the ability of other networks to perform
A formal approach to the management of infrastructure assets is essential in order to provide services in the most cost-effective manner, and to demonstrate this to customers, investors and other stakeholders
Building an accurate inventory of IT assets can be a massive challenge, especially as these assets often experience changes. Most of the benefits of a mature asset management practice are based on three components: People, Process, and Technology. Without automated discovery tools in place, benefits are nominal.
Enormous efficiencies in accurate data discovery. Consolidation of information between inventory, licenses and contracts and better tracking of renewals and lease expiry. Integration between asset, contract, and service management departments for better reporting and metrics.
Automating the inventory process provides a depth of information that is unparalleled through manual processes and can be integrated into systems management and service management tools for greater access to information and better use of data.
