What Are Asset Audits?
An Asset Audit refers to the process of analyzing an organization’s IT infrastructure for effectiveness and efficiency. The goal of these audits is to maximize the value of all technology assets and strategies. Asset Audits typically include a detailed report of a business’s IT inventory and available resources.
Asset Audit Process
Conducting an Asset Audit typically involves the following stages:
- Build your asset inventory using multiple discovery sources.
- Track the lifecycle of each of your IT assets.
- Review software licenses and licensing terms.
- Quantify the value of any unused hardware and software licenses.
- Generate a detailed report and analysis from the gathered data.
Benefits of Asset Audits
Keeping track of assets after an enterprise business has undergone a significant shift can be a challenge, especially for IT teams responsible for tackling new projects. Conducting an Asset Audit prior to starting a new technology project enables IT teams to see a big-picture view of their environment, so they can complete the project on time and within the budget. Asset Audits can also uncover cost savings by identifying unused technology, outdated equipment, and underutilized licenses.
