The Last Installment
This is the third and last installment that has been known as the most challenging as well as the most significant of requirements for the next generation ITAM. The first set of the process was a ITAM solution. Inventory and Normalization is a single platform, where there are important elements of license, integration, cloud and reporting that also need to be considered. Sharing and integration are straight-forward. When considering the acquisition of a next generation tool, the ability to communicate and share information should be available as a routine, not an option.
Analytics and Next Generation Systems
Analytics is an important requirement for the next generation systems. A responsibility of a ITAM developer relies on organizations and external reporting tools. Information that is received from ITAM is a certain domain, and the advantages from the connected data in the unified system must be available to the users of the data. This is a reporting capability that one should be able to build informational objectives and answer questions to support improving the efficiency of the organization to keep operational. By sharing reports and dashboards, this will add the value of ITAM ensuring it to work.
The last two installments to consider are the requirements for the ITAM to be licensed. Being licensed aware is having discovery technology that understands discovery and the rules. Cloud awareness offers discovery of outside assets. Those assets are not tied to a specific device but to a service cloud. This leads to serious cost concerns where license is focused on contract compliance. Cloud awareness is a wider issue of security and governance. These services of cloud are delivered by a public connection.
Installed vs. Use
Today’s licensed awareness technology makes possible to understand the difference between being installed versus use. Scanning the network and identify the configurations that best represent the cost to the business.
ITAM tooling remains focused on internal assets. The rate of adopting cloud is climbing and is one of the major transform issues facing many businesses. In today’s digital world, discovery of SaaS often needs the portal to be accessed by application. This is useful information because it helps to correlate between who is licensed to use a special feature and who is using a feature. It provides for detection of usage of SaaS application that is found outside of normal organization control. These connections can lead to unauthorized access of the company information and the loss of property or proprietary information. This leads a company to be subject to unbudgeted monthly fees.
