IT asset management (ITAM) is all too often a tangled and fragmented affair. With insufficient and sometimes redundant coverage, ITAM is usually a siloed mix of manual updates and piecemeal automation. The resulting inefficiencies and inaccuracies threaten not only the effectiveness but even the very integrity of IT.

It doesn't have to be that way. Integrated, reconciled IT asset data provides an invaluable foundation for a wide variety of strategic IT and business initiatives including enterprise architecture, security, IT modernization, M&A, data center consolidation and more.
