Normalized Inventory—the Common Foundation for SAM and Security

Normalized Inventory—the Common Foundation for SAM and Security | The "in" report. | Scoop.it

Brought to you by Flexera Software, December 1st ITAM Awareness Month Sponsor

 

Normalized software inventory data, covering all devices and platforms across the IT estate, is the common foundation for both Software Asset Management (SAM) and Security. Software vulnerability management tools use this data to determine where known vulnerabilities exist in the environment so they can be remediated to reduce security risk. SAM tools use the normalized software data to drive rationalization and consolidation of the portfolio, remove unauthorized applications and determine license compliance positions. As software asset managers, you can provide this critical data to the security team while also reducing license compliance risk and the unbudgeted costs associated with audits.

Webinar Jan 18 2017 2PM EST: People, Process and Technology Considerations for ITAM and ITSM Integration | The "in" report. | Scoop.it

IT Service Management (ITSM) Systems, such as ServiceNow or BMC Remedy, help organizations plan, design, deliver, operate and control IT services offered to customers. From the finance and procurement department perspectives, these ITSM systems are insufficient to provide the necessary financial, contractual and inventory information needed for managing the software and hardware life cycle, or what IT Asset Management (ITAM) systems bring to the table. 

For this reason, many organizations are pursuing the integration of their ITAM and ITSM processes and tools to generate the most up-to-date and actionable information to enable the most effective business decisions about managing and optimizing their IT assets. In this webinar, we will review the challenges organizations are facing on this journey with respect to people, process and technology and how they are overcoming them to reduce costs, eliminate risk and deliver IT service efficiency. In addition, we will share a vision on the ideal intersection point for these two systems and how to overcome the challenges for a successful integration. 

Join IAITAM and Siwel Consulting as they discuss ITAM and ITSM
