Why vCloud Tech?Align Your asset management application with assistance with processes and services crucial in IT.
SolarWinds Service Desk’s fully integrated IT asset management program provides the most powerful features and tools within one web-based application. Keep track of your organization’s software and hardware inventory, including computers, servers, mobile phones, laptops, network equipment, and almost any other technological asset. Asset management (ITAM) is the process of cataloguing, tracking, and managing an organization’s technology assets. IT Asset Management (sometimes called IT asset management) is a way to monitor and analyze financial and contractual components against actual inventory to ensure service performance and gain a deeper understanding of how IT assets benefit users and the business. As a critical component to the success of an enterprise, assets could include physical, tangible assets like servers and hardware, as well as intangible assets such as purchases, programs, and contracts.
IT Asset Management provides you with the tools to document and manage the life cycle of every IT asset, from the time it first comes into use until the retirement of the asset and all the changes in between. In the absence of IT Asset Management, capturing the recorded history of an asset could be a tedious task of filling out spreadsheets every time an event occurs or when a new user takes over the support. This could be daunting and time-consuming when analyzing incidents or conducting root-cause analysis. In addition, asset management software lets you easily coordinate the inventory of your software and hardware assets, owners and assignments, and location data in one location.

The IT Asset Management software greatly benefits by being as efficient as possible. Tag and track hundreds of hardware properties such as software titles, the history of your location, and the user on your Windows, iOS, and Chrome OS devices. Make time-saving decisions and keep all your records up-to-date in one place by combining vendor information, warranties, lease conditions, and contracts. Reduce the time spent on break fixes and modifications in service desk tickets by collecting and automatically recording the history of each asset’s incidents.
Unified ITAM Software and Service
DeskIT professionals can gain an understanding of their self-service preferences and the amount being used to purchase assets. The best asset management software will be integrated with the software for your service desk. Companies that use tools for managing assets that are not linked to their ITSM tool render it challenging to implement proper Asset Lifecycle Control. Therefore, ensuring that your service desk software integrates with your asset management system and solves potential problems is crucial.
Agentless Asset Management Solutions
One of the most effective ways to keep track of all your software, hardware, or infrastructure-related systems is to employ the discovery tool as a component in your overall asset management system. Discover tools within IT enable complete tracking of assets after they’ve been discovered. One of the more sought-after methods of collecting information about assets includes using agents rather than using them or other search tools. One of the most significant advantages for agents is their ability to monitor laptops and different mobile gadgets. Agent-based asset management software requires minimal infrastructure to set up as agents are installed directly on the device and monitor anywhere as long as they access the web.
Though robust but not all devices permit the installation of agents. Agentless software can provide advantages over devices such as switches and routers. If you’re trying to keep track of these items, you’ll need to take the more manual way in your IT strategy for managing assets.

IT asset management (also known as ITAM) ensures that an organization’s assets are recorded, deployed, maintained, updated, and destroyed when necessary. Simply put, it’s about ensuring that valuable tangible and intangible assets are tracked and used within an organization.
Because ITSM focuses on service delivery, it focuses only on the operational phase of an asset’s life cycle. Its configuration is to support services, and ITAM covers the entire asset lifecycle. ITAM focuses on managing the financial, contractual and operational risks and impacts of assets.
The four main types of ITAM options are:
- Hardware and software asset management
- Cloud asset management
- digital asset management
- asset management
The IT asset manager is responsible for the day-to-day and long-term strategic management of software and technology-related hardware within an organization. That includes planning, monitoring, and recording software licenses and hardware assets to ensure compliance with vendor agreements.
