As early as 2006, Microsoft published a white paper stating that companies that build effective IT Asset Management (ITAM) programs could expect to reduce their IT spending by up to 30 percent in the first year, and a further 8 to 10 percent during subsequent years.
Gartner also estimates that approximately 20 percent of software owned by companies is never used, and a report issued by Morgan Stanley and AMR Research indicates that almost half of all CRM licenses purchased are never allocated.
Great ITAM starts with establishing a meaningful set of data. Having accurate data on your current IT landscape will not only help you understand your most urgent and important software needs but it will enable our consultants to make the best decisions for your business.
