IT Asset Management is often considered as a boring and low grade task by many technical executives, CTOs and even CIOs. This is because most technical staff in many organizations hates getting involved in the commercial and financial aspects of managing IT assets as they think this is just a glorified storekeeper job. Such misconceptions result in frequent battles between the finance, audit, and the technical departments. However, IT asset management is an extremely crucial function of any organization, and must be given the highest importance possible by the senior management. An IT asset manager’s job is a powerful position that can help organizations to save costs, ensure material discipline, offload asset activities from technical staff who may not be qualified or interested in doing such activities, ensure physical and data security, help in budgeting, and supervise the complete lifecycle of IT assets used in an organization. Secondly, it’s not a mere storekeeper’s job as many executives fear and this book will show you how and why.
