The Basics of
IT Asset Management

An essential guide
on the past, present and
future of ITAM

According to the Snow Software 2023 IT Priorities Report, 86% of today’s IT leaders report that business units are under significant stress because they’re unaware of all purchased cloud and SaaS. If you’re one of these professionals, you probably know that effective IT asset management (ITAM) is the answer to getting complete visibility into your IT assets. You may not, however, be aware of everything that composes modern ITAM, the extent of ITAM’s reach, its origins or the potential it has to transform your organization in the future.

This complimentary guide defines ITAM by identifying its essential components and exploring its past, present and rapidly approaching future. It’s designed for everyone interested in ITAM — whether you’re a new ITAM practitioner at your organization, an outsider curious about the benefits an ITAM program can provide, or an experienced ITAM leader wondering about what’s next for your field.

Our guide explores ITAM in three parts:

  • Part One dives into the early, pre-cloud days of ITAM that were based in SAM and on-premises hardware. It outlines essential ITAM components and practices rooted in this time that are still essential today.
  • Part Two centers on ITAM’s current expansion into cloud and SaaS.
  • Part Three focuses on the emerging future of IT organizations and their ITAM practices as providers of Technology Intelligence — the ability to understand and manage all technology.
We also include advice on applying this Technology Intelligence so IT teams can secure budget and cross-functional support more efficiently, successfully manage their ever-growing inventories, and address the growing information and collaboration needs of their organizations.
