Why Your Traditional IT Asset Management Needs a Makeover


In the realm of IT, asset management has often been an overlooked area, considered more of a logistical necessity than a strategic tool. Traditional IT asset management (ITAM) methods have long focused on manual tracking and spreadsheets, resulting in inefficiencies and inaccuracies. However, the rapidly evolving digital landscape is necessitating a shift in this approach. Here's why your traditional ITAM needs a makeover, and how Oomnitza can help.

The Shortcomings of Traditional ITAM

Conventional ITAM, with its manual methods and isolated systems, is riddled with limitations. For one, it's extremely time-consuming and prone to human error. When you're dealing with thousands of assets, even a small mistake can have a significant impact.

Moreover, traditional ITAM lacks real-time visibility. IT teams often struggle to locate assets, track their status, and manage their lifecycle effectively. This lack of visibility can lead to missed opportunities for optimization and cost savings.

Further, with ever-increasing compliance requirements and the risk of costly fines for non-compliance, relying on outdated ITAM methods is risky. It's challenging to ensure compliance when you don't have an accurate, up-to-date record of your assets.
